2.Aluminum foil

The onion method is equally simple to use as the aluminium foil approach. To make this, simply take an aluminium foil sheet and mush it into a ball. Next, apply pressure while sweeping the aluminium foil across the grill's grates.

Food particles and trash can be scraped off with the aid of the aluminium foil. Similar to how you would with an onion, you should use a vacuum afterwards. At the conclusion of the season, you should also give your grill a thorough cleaning with soap and water.

3.Nylon scouring pad

Utilize this on your grill without hesitation if you already possess a nylon scouring pad for use in the kitchen. Just make sure it's composed of nylon rather than something else that might harm your grill.

Just take the scouring pad and use it to thoroughly clean the grill grates once they have cooled. As a result, some food and debris should be trapped in the scouring pad.


You can use a tub filled with a small amount of vinegar, water, and lemon to remove stubborn grease. After that, submerge your grill grates in the tub and let them soak for the entire night.

When they're done, you should be able to use one of the aforementioned techniques to quickly remove any leftover debris. Just remember to rinse the grates well before using them once more to avoid giving your dish a vinegar taste!

Grill Cleaning Advice

Are you prepared for a spotlessly clean grill? Simply adhere to these suggestions!

1.Clean the grill while warm

Cleaning your grill while it's still a little warm is actually useful, despite the fact that it may sound a little risky. This will facilitate the removal of debris with a brush and prevent the oil from solidifying fully.

There's a thin line between the grill being heated and being too hot to handle, so proceed with caution. We advise against touching the grill directly and always placing tongs or a fork between your fingers and the heated grate if the method you intend to employ calls for the grill to be slightly warm.

2.Clean your grill after each use

After a lengthy grilling session, it may be tempting to turn off your grill and walk away, but doing so just allows the fat to solidify and accumulate. Consequently, cleaning your grill will be even more challenging the next time.

Make sure to remove as much carbon from the grill as you can after each cooking session. While it's not necessary to soak the gates after each session, we do advise doing it after three to four uses to make sure your grill is sufficiently clean to prevent strange flavours from transferring to your meal.

3.Create a spray

Creating a spray using vinegar, water, and a little lemon juice—is one approach to simplifying grill cleaning. Fill a spray bottle with this mixture and set it next to your barbecue. In this manner, your grill will be ready for use during the following session once you have finished spritzing it and cleaning the grates!

However, this combination is not meant to last forever, so make sure to replace it once a week.

4.Remember to bring the lid

Remember to periodically clean the inside of your grill lid in addition to the grill grates. Grease or debris that falls onto the grill lid has the potential to dry there and fall onto food the next time you grill.

While it's not necessary to do this each time you grill, it's a good idea to wipe any debris from the inside of your grill with a damp towel about once every other week. This procedure doesn't involve the use of soap, as doing so would force you to re-season your grill more frequently than you would like. Furthermore, this will deter animals from building a nest in your grill if you live in a bug-filled area!

You can be certain that your grill will be in excellent working order for many years to come if you pay attention to all of these suggestions!
