One Man's Trash Is Another Way to Cook My Hamburgers!

*Thanks to Mean Green for sponsoring this conversation....They have provided samples to try, but I've been a big fan for years. Opinions are my own.

The best things in life may actually be free.

My husband picked up a dirty, unused gas grill from a couple in town who said it was junk. We took it home, where it has been sitting under a tree, suffering from the elements. Today, I decided to get it cleaned up for fall storage, but really didn't want to spend a ton of time or elbow grease doing it.

I remembered that I had a bottle of Mean Green Super Strength Cleaner and Degreaser, which had worked wonders on other very dirty outdoor items we owned. I got a bucket of hot water and a sponge, the Mean Green, and got to work!

 I sprayed the entire surface down and let it sit for a few minutes.

The hot water and sponge took the crusted-on dirt, leaves, and spiderwebs off so easily! I was even successful with getting the birdy poo off the stainless steel. The poo took some shine with it (which can happen from the acidity), but the grill was clean!

Now, my grill won't earn any awards for most beautiful. I certainly wouldn't put it into a magazine shoot. But it's clean enough now to be put into storage until next spring; I wouldn't mind cooking some burger on it for guests!

The next time you think you have junk that's too dirty or grungy to keep around, consider if it's still useful. Then reach for some Mean Green Super Strength Cleaner and Degreaser and bring back a little of its original shine!
