Expert’s Top Tip for a Sparkling BBQ this Summer

As June approaches and the UK gears up for a potential heatwave, many are looking forward to firing up the BBQ. However, a recent survey revealed that nearly 40 percent of Brits have a dirty barbecue, with 19 percent admitting theirs is “absolutely filthy.”

But fear not, as outdoor leisure expert Liam Glennon has shared a budget-friendly cleaning hack that will have your BBQ sparkling in no time. And the best part? It only costs 12p and requires an item you probably already have in your kitchen – an onion.

Glennon recommends attaching half an onion to a fork and rubbing it gently over the hot grill. The onion’s antibacterial properties will help remove impurities, leaving your BBQ clean and safe for food preparation.

In addition to the onion hack, Glennon also suggests using beer to cut through grease on the grill. Simply pour a can of beer over the warmed grates, let it settle, and then scrub away for a sparkling finish.

For tough stains, baking soda mixed with water can work wonders. Apply the paste to the grates, let it sit, then scrub and rinse for a like-new grill. And for hard-to-reach spots, crumpled-up tin foil can help remove stubborn residue.

With these budget-friendly cleaning tips, you’ll be ready to enjoy al-fresco dining with a sparkling clean BBQ all summer long. Say goodbye to dirty grills and hello to outdoor entertaining with these expert-approved hacks.
