Konnichiwa, my lovely readers! Today I’m going to share with you some of the kitchen ventilation fan cleaning detergents that are available in Japan. Cleaning the kitchen ventilation fan is one of the household chores I hate to do. It’s messy, greasy, and smelly.
It’s very important to clean your kitchen ventilation fan regularly. Why? Because the accumulated grease and oil are fire hazards. It can also be a breeding ground for bacteria which might even cause food poisoning especially since it is very near to the place where we prepare and cook our food.
So how often should we clean it? Well, it depends on our cooking activities and how frequently we cook. Probably, if you use oil a lot, you should check it at least once a month to see the situation and decide if it’s time to clean it. There are also filters available in the Japanese market to prolong the cleanliness of our ventilation fans.
There are a lot of detergents that are available here in Japan. Here is the list:
This is one of my favorite multi-purpose cleaning detergents. It is an oxygen bleach and does not contain chlorine or surfactants. To clean ventilation fans with this, all you have to do is dissolve the powder at 40 to 60 degrees Celsius of water and soak the fan. Leave it for a while.
