10 Hacks To Clean a BBQ Grill
If it’s your first time firing up the ol’ girl this year, then make sure to dedicate some time to get your grill up to heat. Greasing your hot grill with a bit of vegetable oil can ensure that food doesn’t stick!
And once you’re finished, use that excess heat to carbonise any leftover food debris. Instead of sticking, it’ll burn to a crisp and be a lot easier to simply scrape off. Then you’ll be right as rain for your next BBQ party.
2. Steam clean
Now, you could use an actual steam cleaner to clean your grill plate. But first, you’d have to own one and second, it can be messy.
Instead, when your barbecue starts to cool, simply cover your grill with some moist newspaper soaked in water and close the lid. Keep the lid closed for about 30 minutes and hey presto – a quick and cheap steam clean!
4. Baking soda
We’re pretty sure at this point that you could use vinegar and bicarbonate of soda to clean just about anything!

5. Vinegar spray
For this hack you can just pour 500ml of vinegar into a:
- Bucket of clean water
- Or a spray bottle
- To create a vinegar solution
Once you’ve followed step 3 with baking soda, spray your solution on the grill and leave it for about 10 minutes. Next, using a dry cloth, wipe your grill down. Simple as!
