  • 1 tablespoon Baking Soda
  • 1 tablespoon Sal Suds
  • 1 tablespoon Cleaning Vinegar (can subsitute distilled white vinegar)
  • 1 ball aluminum foil (can use a grill brush if preferred)
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil spray
  1. Fill a shallow tin (I recommend an aluminum baking tin) with boiling water and stick it in the lit grill. Close the lid and let steam for 10 minutes to loosen any dirt, grime and stuck on food. Remove water pan and turn off heat when ready to clean.

  2. Meanwhile, combine Baking Soda and Sal Suds with 12 ounces of warm water. Pour into a glass bottle fitted with a sprayer and add vinegar. Gently swirl to combine. Spray cleaning mixture onto grill to thoroughly coat the grates. Ball up aluminum foil until it's the size of a baseball and scour the grill to clean. If you prefer a grill brush, that works great too. 

  3. Once the grill is clean, spray avocado oil onto a paper towel and give your grill a quick wipe over to stop it from rusting and season it for future use.
