  • And Oil Eater® Original Cleaner & Degreaser 

Here’s what to do:
First, if your grill grates have lots of baked-on grease, turn the heat on high and let it burn for 10 minutes. Using a grill brush, clean any heavy residue off the hot grates. Then turn off the grill and let it cool down. Make sure the grill is completely cool before you begin cleaning. 

Next, remove the grates, place them in a watertight tray. Add water until the grates are covered, and then add Oil Eater® Cleaner at a ratio of 10:1. Allow the grates to soak for 5-10 minutes.  

Scrub the grates with a grill brush to remove all the greasy residue.  

Use a garden hose to thoroughly rinse the grill grates. 

Next, wipe the grill grates dry with a shop towel.  

If your grill grates are stainless steel or iron, it’s important to coat them with canola oil to prevent rusting.
