A few weeks ago, I shared an embarrassing picture of our grill, which was dirty and fairly rusted in places.
We were excited to realize that baking soda can be used on large outdoor products like grills, garage floors, and patio furniture — I’m not sure why we hadn’t thought of that before! — and anxious to put it to the test.
First, the good:
We made a cleaning paste of 3 parts baking soda to 1 part water and used it to scrub the grill grate. It worked incredibly well, and the grate is now free from the rust that was beginning to form and ready to be oiled and used!
The baking soda paste also did a great job of cleaning the stainless steel surfaces of the grill as far as dirt and grime.
Unfortunately, the areas that were really rusted (mostly along the front crease but also a few little spots on the sides) did not come clean. I’m not particularly surprised by this, but I did want to mention it in the interest of full disclosure.
Buying a grill cover is on our list for this week, and I’m looking forward to some grilled shrimp kebabs, my very favorite food to make on the grill!
