CLEAN BAFFLE FILTERS OF ELECTRIC CHIMNEY

Yum
Hi friends, Today I bring tips and tricks, Ya today am not posting any recipes, next week vinayagar chathurthi is coming!!... So all of us to be in festive mood n more than cleaning our houses too isn't it? I thought post it before itself n I forgot, now it will be useful to you...

Nowadays most of us using modern kitchen with electric chimney to remove the cooking smoke and smells, so the oil gets accumulated in the filters, n there are many type of filters like replaceable and baffle filters, am using baffle filters. In our Indian Kitchen most of us using the baffle filters and it can reused again and again and to clean the filter is quite difficult...

Why? In our tradition we use nice amount of Oil,ghee and butter in daily cooking is it? First I used to clean the baffle filters with hot water with mild detergents but its not give good results and one time service man came n he cleaned it with one secret ingredient, WOW!!... it was sparkling filters... When my dad ask him what u used to clean... n suddenly the man said it is nothing sir! its caustic soda... yes! It is chemical name Sodium Hydroxide which is we can get it from chemical stores/suppliers.

CAUTION: Please be careful and do not touch with hand at all because it is highly corrosive when u pour hot water to it, it make fumes which is quite uncomfortable one...If you are not sure that what you are doing please don't do it yourself ask your service man do it... Use gloves and use.

OIL/GREASE FREE BAFFLE FILTERS!!!


What happen in between? Is this your doubt???

Come lets move on to the,

METHOD


  • Take the baffle filters from the chimney.















  • Keep the metal tray on your sink and keep the filters in the tray.



















  • Wear gloves and take 4-5 Tbsp of caustic soda sprinkle on the top of the filters as shown in the picture.








  • Boil water and pour the hot water in the tray n be sure make some distance between u and the tray. Because fumes will come while adding hot water don't inhale deeply.























  • Keep it rest for some minutes to hour, I kept 1-2 hours.
  • You can see the changes suddenly.









  • Next washing part. Don't take by hands, open the tap water directly on the tray all the chemical waters will overflow, wait till see the clear waters on the tray.











  • Now removing the baffle filters by gloves wore hands.
  • Wow!!! Its sparkling... Free out of oil/grease...








HOW IS IT???

  26. It WORKS!

    Some practical tips from my own experience:

    1. Wear a mask (or handkerchief) over the nose to minimize fumes inhalation.

    2. I kept it submerged for an hour or so, and that was enough. It starts to work the moment water is poured, so probably even an hour may be more than extra.

    3. Keep the kitchen/room well ventilated and start the fans etc to drive out the fumes. Leave that room for a while because the fumes presumably are unhealthy, they smell bad too.
