Easy Grill Grate Cleaning

It's the middle of summer grilling season, and keeping your grill clean is never more crucial. Next time, try this creative technique!

It's a well-known fact that hot grill grates are much easier to clean than cool ones, but scrubbing charred food off your grill can still be a challenge.


    After you fire up your grill next time, use pliers to immediately remove the hot grate. Wrap the grate in newspapers that have been soaked thoroughly with water, and leave it wrapped for 15 minutes. The papers will create steam that loosens burned-on foods, and you'll be able to scrape them off easily.
