I did it!!! I actually made our 10 year old Gas Grill look sparkling and clean!

Last week I talked about how you can use ARM & HAMMER baking soda to bring out the shine and get your outdoors clean.

Our grill is 10 years old and was looking pretty gross. I took the the grates and flavor savors off, hosed them down then sprinkled them with baking soda while Allison worked on the outside of the grill

After letting all of the inside pieces sit for a few minutes, I began scrubbing and could instantly see a difference! Black burnt-on gunk was just falling off without much effort. It was hard to make it look like new, because of the age of our grill, parts are starting to rust, but I was really amazed at how easy it was to clean!

Allison did a fabulous job on the outside of the grill!

Make Cleaning A Habit
Going forward, clean your grill after each use. Follow tips from the website Gas Grills Now, which suggests this easy cleaning method: Remove cooked food, turn flame to low, brush the grates with a grill brush for a few seconds, turn off burners, let them cool, and only then spray the surface with vegetable oil, which loosens more food from the grates.

With a little bit of early-season elbow grease and baking soda, you’ll be able to keep your grill and guests well fed all summer long!

  1. […] Remove and wash the grates using a stiff brush to remove food bits.  For charcoal grills, lean out any leftover charcoal or ashes and wash then rinse inside and out.  For gas grills, remove the gas tank and inspect connections and burners for leaks, blockages or wear.  As you remove the grate and other sections wash off any grease from them and the grill interior.  If the briquettes are heavily crusted, replace with a new batch.Source: […]
