The Fourth of July is a day to celebrate independence! But it is also a national grilling holiday. If you entertained a lot of people on the big red, white, and blue day, your grill is probably built up with grime and overall pretty nasty. It is going to take a little more than elbow grease to get the job done, so use these tips to make sure your grill gets the bath it deserves!
Take a metal tin filled with water and bring it to a boil on the grill. This will create enough steam to loosen up all the grime and then you can take a grill brush and scrape it all off.
Half of a bottle of beer should also do the trick. I know, I know you don’t want to waste a beer but it will make your life a lot easier. Take half of a bottle of beer and pour it over a warm grill. This should break down the layers of oil and grease and make it easy to brush it all off with a bristle brush.
Throw some household vinegar in a spray bottle and spray it all over the grill. Take a piece of aluminum foil and ball it up and use that as your bristle brush. This will have your grill looking new as ever.
Stick half of an onion on your grill fork and rub the onion all over the grill grates then scrub it with your brush and you are good to go!
A dirty grill is no good for a plethora of reasons. It can be dangerous, it looks gross, and it also makes your food taste kind of gross. Use these tips to clean your grill so the next time there is demand for an impromptu grill-out, you are ready to go!
