How to clean a stainless steel grill that is disgusting! Today I am sharing how to clean a stainless steel grill using Tide OXI Multi-purpose Stain Remover. I am here to tell you that TIDE is not just for laundry! This stuff is absolutely amazing and not only can it be used on floor stains, kitchen sinks, tubs and more, it worked fantastic on my friends sad grill.
I will admit, the grill is the last thing on my cleaning list so I was thrilled to see another grill in worse condition than mine ;).

She thought I was out of my mind when I told her I wanted to try out this new product and experiment how well it cleaned a grill.
I decided to mix the cleaner with warm water in a spray bottle.
I followed the directions on the back of the container and simply added to a bottle instead of a bucket.
I tested a small part of the grill first to ensure that it didn’t damage the stainless steel and oh my, it worked fantastic!
Clean your grill in the shade as the sun will dry out your cleaning solution in seconds.
How do I make my stainless steel grill look new?
Once I sprayed the solution, I let it set for a few seconds and then wiped it off with a paper towel.
I did have a small bucket of warm water and a sponge that I used to remove any excess cleaner.I am a freak about having any cleaner left on any food surface (even if it says it’s safe) so I always wash off any cleaner regardless of what I am cleaning.
Call me paranoid, that’s just me!
I used a soft white painters rag to dry and buff the stainless steel grill.
The improvement of this old BBQ grill is amazing and my friend isn’t laughing at me anymore!
Not to shabby right?
Minus a few dings and scratches that have occurred over the past few years, her grill is sporting a shiny new look and I must say, I am jealous I cleaned her grill and not mine.
How I cleaned my BBQ grill
The Tide OXI Multi-purpose Stain Remover exceeded my expectations and it really smells good too.
The great thing about this product is it has over 225 cleaning uses and more being added every day. I’ve only had it for a week and I’ve used it to clean our shower tile, kitchen sink, the grill, a nasty mold stain on our back door and of course, I’ve added it to the washer drum to clean the clothes.

I don’t have a picture but we had a really nasty stain on our berber carpet in our family room that was caused by one of our dogs and we couldn’t get the stain out so I sprayed some of the Tide OXI I had left over in the bottle on it and let it sit for a few minutes and then took a scrub brush to it. I know scrubbing a carpet is not the best idea but I had nothing to lose.
Do you know what, the stain is gone! Like for real!!! You can find it at any Home Depot and be sure to jump over to the Bright Ideas page to be further inspired from by other bloggers.
This post was sponsored by Home Depot and Proctor and Gamble and I was compensated but I kid you not, this stuff is fabulous. I told my friend’s daughter that she needed to pay special attention and learn how to clean a grill. She is 15 years old and entering her freshman year of high school so learning how to clean a stainless steel grill wasn’t on her list of priorities.
Oh well! Now it’s time to clean my own grill!
