8 Fantastic Tips Cleaning Your BBQ!

8 Fantastic Tips Cleaning Your BBQ!


 

1) COFFEE!

 

We all love coffee! Most of us drinking it every day, although what you might not have known is that coffee is quite acidic!

If you are having trouble with stubborn grease stains then brew up some coffee and fill up your kitchen sink then let your grills, plates and utensils soak in the brew for around 10-15 minutes.

Then...boom the grime should come right off!


 

2) ONIONS!

Not only are onions great cooking on the barbie to get the aromas into the air and to make people hungry, but they can also be used after the cook to get your BBQ squeaky clean!

Make sure there is still some heat left on grills and put half an onion on the end of some tongs or a fork and rub the onion all over the grill!

The heat will cause the moisture in the onion to steam out over the grill effectively achieving a steam clean on your barbeque!


 

3) DISHWASHNG!

Easy, simple and smart! Although not everyone does this, unless you are packing a massive BBQ in your back yard, almost all plates and grills should be able to fit nicely into your kitchen sink! Therefore, you can clean them the traditional way!


 

4) STEAM CLEAN!

Maybe you accidentally ate the half onion you were saving to clean the grill! Never fear, wet newspaper is here! Believe it or not when you are finished using your barbecue you can place some wet newspaper inside and close the lid for around 30 mins! After that, you've just successfully steam cleaned your BBQ!


 

5) VINEGAR BE CLEANIN' YA!

Sorry sometimes a little rhyme is the best way to remove the grime…

But really, try mixing equal parts water and vinegar into a spray bottle, then spray the surface of the barbecue and let t rest for 10 minutes! Whilst you wait, empty the bottle and refill with only vinegar and after 10 mins get spraying and scrubbing! The grime should melt way!


 

6) RUST PROTECTION

Have a little rust issue on your bbq! Try and get some olive oil and give your bbq a quick wipe over after you have finished cleaning it! This will seal up the grills and tops oxidisation!


 

7) BAKING SODA, DO YOU GOT BAKING SODA?

A tablespoon of baking soda and a tablespoon of vinegar in a litre of hot water. Wait an hour………………………………………. now scrub and clean as normal! The baking soda solution would have broken down the grease and grime, making it super easy to clean!


 

8) BEER BEER BEER!

If you have been too busy cooking up a feast and left with half a bottle of warm beer, then you are in luck! Just poor that sucker onto a warm BBQ at the end of a cook then get scrubbing with some newspaper or a wire brush and in no time that baby will be clean!
