The chimney is one of the many electronic gadgets in the kitchen, but this chimney is the dirtiest. Other kitchen gadgets such as blenders, food processors, microwaves or gas burners are as easy and regular to clean as chimneys, but not as regular. But the most important thing is to clean the chimney, because as much smoke from the kitchen comes out through the chimney and as a result the quickest and most dirty is a lot. Let’s find out how you can easily clean a chimney at home.
Baking soda is in everyone’s kitchen. Apart from using baking soda in many dishes, many people do not know that baking soda can be used to clean grease very well. Since most of the oil ink and grease accumulates in the kitchen chimney, it is most important to clean this gadget in the kitchen. Mix two tablespoons of baking soda and a little water together to make a thick paste. This time apply the paste on the surface of the chimney and leave it for an hour.

Not many people know that white vinegar not only enhances the taste of food, but also works very well to clean any kind of oil, ink or grease. You can use white vinegar to clean the kitchen chimney.
