When you grill regularly on your gas barbecue grill, buildup gets left behind and requires that you to clean the gill. Since you are using a gas grill, you want to use safe and mild cleaning products that are not flammable.
Dishwashing detergent breaks up and cleans off the cooked-on residue stuck to the grill. It also contains no chemical or flammable ingredients, making it perfect for use on your gas barbecue grill. Fill a cleaning bucket with 1 gallon water and 1/4 cup dishwashing detergent.
Aside from the basic cleaning solution, you also want to incorporate a mild disinfectant to kill any bacteria present on your gas barbecue grill. White vinegar works perfectly for this task, as it is non-toxic and non-flammable. To use, pour 1/2 cup white vinegar into a bucket along with the dishwashing soap and water.
A garden hose allows you to quickly rinse off the grill. Pre-rinse the grill grates, and scrub them down with a nylon scrubbing pad dipped in the soapy vinegar water. The nylon scrubbing pad works well, as it is abrasive but will not scratch any part of your gas barbecue grill. After scrubbing the grill, rinse off the grates and the exterior of your grill with the garden hose, and wipe down the inside with a damp cleaning rag. Remember to stay away from the pilots of the gas grill, as water can prevent these from functioning properly.
