Grimy Vent Filter

If you've got: a grimy vent filter

Ideal solution: Chemical degreasers, which contain solvents that cut through grime in range-hood filters

In-a-pinch fix: Rubbing alcohol

How it works: Alcohol dissolves greasy muck, making it easier to remove, but is also flammable, so clean the filter in the sink and rinse well.
