The charcoal filter is the filter that is for odors-air filter. It used to be that the blower was connected to a pipe that either with through the roof of into the attic. This was changed to use the air (charcoal) filter. The grease filter(s) is on the bottom of the microwave and is aluminum.
For microwaves, fridges, and other black appliances: Mix a solution of equal parts water and vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray the homemade cleaning solution directly onto the surfaces (both exterior and interior!) and use a clean microfiber cloth to wipe away any food stains and splatters.
We would recommend any branded products that say that they are microwave safe. If there are any persistent stains or baked on splashes, you can use either a liquid cream cleanser or a cold oven cleaner.
When it’s time to clean your microwave, use Clorox Disinfecting Wipes to disinfect the outside, and lemon to clean the inside. Wipes are the easy way to clean all your kitchen appliances.
Wondering how you can clean your range hood charcoal filters? Carbon/charcoal filters used in your ventilation cannot be cleaned. Simply replace them every 3 to 4 months, depending on usage.
“Microwaves should be cleaned at least once a week, depending on the frequency of use,” says Elena Ledoux of Superb Maids.
Wiping down the interior of your microwave with dish soap and warm water will help remove food particles and grease. Whirlpool recommends doing this with a soft cloth. You can also wash the turntable with soapy waterjust be sure to let it cool completely first, since hot glass can shatter in water.
It’s a good idea to change your range hood filter every one to three months. You may want to lean closer to the one-month frequency if you do a lot of cooking, or if your cooking style includes a lot of spicy or greasy foods.
