Summer is coming. You can feel it in the air (in between the heavy rain showers). But the British weather aside, summer means one thing – and that’s barbecues. Yes, it’s time to dust off the cobwebs and wheel your machine out of storage for a nice barbecue cleaning routine before impressing your family and friends with your grill master skills.

Hopefully you remembered to clean it before you put it away last summer… we know it’s a 50/50 chance. But don’t worry, with the help of GT85 multi-purpose spray, getting to work on the rust, grease and grime is a lot easier than it sounds.

So, read these great tips, give your BBQ some TLC and stock up on your meat, veg and salad.

Basic BBQ maintenance

A quick couple of warnings before we start: if using a gas barbecue, make sure to disconnect the gas tank first. And it’s always best to check your BBQ’s cleaning instructions alongside our useful tips. Right, let’s get busy…

If it’s your first barbecue of the year then there’s a good chance that it’s been in cold storage over winter. Like in a shed, garage or under cover. Did you clean if before you put away last year? If not, it will need a deep clean to make those cobwebs go away…

After that it’s best to give your BBQ a quick once-over after each use (burning off the previous session will only do so much). For either type of clean, GT85 is your Best Kept Secret.

Use it as part of your basic barbecue cleaning kit:

  • Rubber gloves for your hands
  • A stainless-steel bristled brush to scrape away scorched food and grease
  • Warm soapy water and non-abrasive sponge
  • A lint-free cloth to clean, dry and buff surfaces
  • Your trusty black’n’red can of GT85 multi-purpose spray, of course

Cleaning the inside of your barbecue

First get your gloves on. Ensuring that your barbecue is fully cool to the touch, brush off and remove any food debris. Next, clear the ashes from the base of the grill, clean with soapy water and dry thoroughly.

Now spray some GT85 and let it settle for a few seconds. The PTFE-based formula will help remove rust and form a protective layer. Brush it off with your stainless-steel bristle brush and wipe clean with a wet sponge. This bit’s all good.


Cleaning the outside of your barbecue

Many people don’t bother with the outside, but if you’ve got such an effective BBQ cleaning spray like GT85 to hand, you might as well go the whole hog and do it too.

It’s as simple as applying the GT85 to the chrome or stainless-steel exterior. Wiping off the spray with a microfibre cloth. Rinsing the frames and panels with soap water and a sponge. Then drying, and you’re done. Now let’s get cooking!
