Clean Your Stainless Steel BBQ and Make it Shine!

Ah the BBQ, the symbol of summer. From hamburger patties to rotisserie chicken, it never fails to provide a delicious home cooked meal all summer long!

We use ours probably at least five days a week during the summer months, it’s a mess free, easy way to cook up any kind of food. But unfortunately for our BBQ, it gets a little neglected when it comes to maintenance, specifically cleaning.

When you spend a couple hundred dollars on a BBQ, it stings a little to see it so dirty and gross. And the dirtier it gets, the more I don’t want to clean it.

I hate to admit it, but this is at least a couple years’ worth of dirt and grime built up on our BBQ. Yuck!

So I’ve searched around the internet looking for a way to clean it without spraying chemicals all over my  deck. I wanted some way to clean it that wouldn’t have fumes burning my nose or a risk of skin irritation if my hands were exposed.

A lot of people seem to have luck with vinegar. They would just spray it on and wipe it clean. Maybe their BBQ wasn’t as neglected as mine… I did try vinegar. And I scrubbed and scrubbed… and scrubbed!

I needed something a little stronger, but still didn’t want to use harsh chemicals.

So I dug through my cleaning cupboard and found the solution. My Norwex Cleaning Paste!

I know, I know, I’m always talking about my Norwex products, but it’s because they actually work! And it works with no nasty chemicals, no fumes, and safe for the environment. AND – no gloves or mask needed for this stuff.

You will need:

Norwex Cleaning Paste

Microfiber Cloth

Norwex SpiriSponge (or another scrubby safe for stainless steel)

Warm water (to dip your cloth/scrubby in while cleaning)

Bucket of water (to rinse the BBQ off when you’re done)

Instructions:

The Cleaning Paste is pretty easy to use, you just take a damp microfiber cloth (I used my Norwex Envirocloth) and rub it until you make a paste, then apply that directly to your stainless steel.

For those real nasty spots on the edge of the grill I really had to scrub. I pulled out my Norwex SpiriSponge and it made it so much easier!

When you’ve cleaned the whole BBQ, make sure to give it a good rinse. If you don’t get all the cleaning paste residue off, it will dry white. But don’t worry it doesn’t stain, just wipe it with a damp cloth and it’s gone.

All in all, it was a success! I was able to clean my very neglected BBQ with NO chemicals!

If you have a less than clean BBQ on your back deck, there is hope for you too! I would be very happy to hear how this worked on your stainless steel grill!
