No harsh cleaner

I bet you heard or know people who used harsh cleaners like oven cleaners to clean their gas grill.

Never use any of these chemical to wash because it can corrode the stainless steel of your grill, making it spoil faster.

Natural cleaner - Vinegar

Vinegar is not only useful as an ingredient and it works well as a cleaning agent.

The solution is really easy to make. Just dilute 2 cup of water with 2 cups of vinegar.

Mix them well and you can spray the solution on the racks of the grill.

Let it dry for about 10 minutes.

Use pure vinegar solution to scrub the grills. You can use cotton cloth to help you on the cleaning. Simple ya?

Start cleaning while it’s warm

After you have finished grilling, let the grill settle down for like 10 minutes before you get to the cleaning.

Make sure it is still warm and not hot.

Scrub the grill grate with a grill brush. Then add some warm water on the grill and close it.

Leave it for about an hour or so before you remove the lids to scrub the residues off the grates.

Oil the grill before cooking

You can coat a thin layer of oil (vegetable oil or any edible oil) before starting any grilling. This can prevent the food from sticking to the grill.

But do remember to clean off the oil every time after use to prevent any buildup of gunk.

Now you know the additional cleaning tips. Get ready for an amazing grilling experience with clean gas grill and easy cleaning process!
