Green Grillin

It's that time of year when we break out our grill. I am a big fan of that fantastic flavor that only grilling seems to give to meat. But you do have to work a little to keep your grill clean and healthy. In recent years I learned that eating high amount of carbon can be a determent to one's health. So don't burn your food guys!

So after you have cooked that meal up on your grill follow these easy tips for healthy cleaning. First off burn off excess grease by turning that flame up and cooking those remains off. Then let your grille cool completely cause your busy eating right? Once the grill is cool sprinkle a light coating of baking soda on the cooking surface and spray white distilled vinegar (which I keep in a spray bottle) over the entire grille area. The combo makes a bubbling cleaner that should lift off any built up grease. Keep spraying the grill to keep the baking soda working and moist. Wipe with a wet rag or wash in the sink.

Keep everything around the grill looking amazing and bacteria free with the following spray formula:
1/2 cup club soda
1/2 cup white vinegar (distilled)
1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide
8 drops of tea tree oil
2 drops of lemon oil

Hint: Mixing the essential oils with the vinegar cuts the vinegar smell significantly...adding the other ingredients in after the oils are mixed with the vinegar assists with this as well. But the vinegar smell evaporates in a few minutes after cleaning anyway.

A great thing you can do for your stainless steel grill is to make a polish from the following:
1/2 cup baking soda
1/4 cup lemon juice
1-2 tbsp of borax
Add club soda to make this into a paste. Apply with a soft cloth and rinse with plain club soda. Polish when your done for a nice finish.

Sooooo easy! And sooooo green!!!
Enjoy grillin!
