  1. Gather the materials

    You need a bucket, water, non-abrasive sponges or rags and a good degreasing detergent.

  2. Mix the solution

    Add ? cup of dishwashing liquid to the bucket of hot water. Mix well.

  3. Clean the outside

    Apply it to the outside of the grill, scrubbing any stains with the sponge. Look closely at the metal to discover its grain. Scrub in the same direction as the grain. Use a garden hose to rinse away the soap and dissolved grease before it settles elsewhere.

  4. Clean the inside

    The inside of your grill is not all made of stainless steel. Use the solution to scrub the grids that hold the food. It is sometimes easier to remove these grids and wash them in the sink. Once you scrub them, rinse them clear of all soap.

  5. Clean the heat shields

    If your grill has heat shields, use the solution to wash away grease buildup and charred food spills. Rinse with the hose.

  6. Dry the grill

    Use a towel to dry any stainless steel parts. Do not allow water to dry on the metal. Keep the lid raised to allow the inside of the grill to dry before attempting to light it.
