Burgers, chicken, shrimp screwers. There’s nothing you won’t throw on your grill. Which is why it’s so grimy, right? Not a problem—here’s how to clean a grill in no time.
What You’ll Need:
- Work gloves
- Grill brush
- Whisk broom (optional)
- Dish soap
- Bounty With Dawn paper towels
- Stainless-steel wipes (for stainless-steel grills)
- Make sure the grill is off, turn off and disconnect the propane tank, put on your work gloves.
- Remove the grates and metal plates under them, and soak in a bucket of hot water with dish soap.
- Use a big piece of foil to cover and protect the heating elements.
- With the grill brush, scrub the residue off the underside of the hood.
- Scrub the inside walls above the elements. (Debris may fall onto the foil—that’s why it’s there!)
- Wipe the walls with damp paper towels—use Bounty With Dawn for intense cleaning power.
- Remove the drip pan, turn it upside down and empty it over a trash can.
- Get the grates and drip pan out of the bucket, scrub them with the brush, rinse off with a hose.
- Take the foil off of the elements and swipe them with the grill brush.
- Put back the metal plates, grates, and drip pan, and reconnect the propane tank.
- If your grill has a cabinet, use the whisk broom to sweep out any leaves and debris.
- Lastly, wipe the grill’s exterior and cabinet with some damp Bounty With Dawn paper towels or stainless-steel wipes.
And that’s how to clean a grill from top to bottom. Now go grab those lamb chops (or steaks, skewers, whatever you’re cookin’).
