After a long BBQ party, the moment you’ve always dreaded has arrived – CLEANING THE BBQ GRILL. But still, to extend the lifespan and ensure that your grill ready for the next use, you’ve still got to do it. So here are 5 simple hacks you can use to make your grill cleaning experience a lot less painful!
1. Steam Cleaning
Cover your grill with soaked newspapers once your grill starts to cool down after roasting your last batch of meat. Leave it shut for 30 minutes to give it a good steam clean before giving it a light scrub to remove the debris.
2. Onion Cleaning
While your grill is still hot, give your grill a good scrub using half a cut onion attached to a fork. The water in the onion helps to steam clean and remove any burnt remains.
3. Baking Soda
Baking soda has long been know to be the ultimate all-purpose cleaner. Sprinkle baking soda with small amounts of water on the grill and scrub it with a sponge until all the baking soda is gone.
Scrub your grill with some newspapers or a wire brush with half a bottle of beer. You’ll thank me after seeing your sparkling grill.
5. Heat Your Grill Up
Once you’re done giving your grill a good scrub down, make sure to leave it heated for at least another 15 minutes. This not only destroys any remaining bacteria but also ensure any residual cleaning agents are burnt off to prevent compromising the food taste in your next use.
To extend the lifespan of your BBQ grill, always remember to keep it clean after every use and dry it before storage (to prevent rusting) so you can have a hassle-free experience on your next use!
