National Survey Finds Only 25% of People Clean their Outdoor Grill

According to a survey of around 18,000 consumers by Procter & Gamble (P&G), only 25% of consumers clean their grills and only 20% clean their outdoor furniture. However, cleaning and maintaining these items can help prolong their use and save money on expensive purchases. According to Josh Temple, host of DIY Network's series House Crashers and Disaster House, finding the right products to get the job done is important.

“This season we are seeing some powerful products from Mr. Clean and Dawn, perfect for tough outdoor cleaning,” Temple said. “These products can help make your grill and outdoor furniture cleaning easier and so much more efficient, and keep them looking good all summer long.”

Temple offers the following tips to help you enjoy your outdoor space all summer long:

1. Maintain the grill in minutes

Summer means barbecuing, which also means a dirty, grimy grill. To keep your grill clean so you can cook alfresco happily all season long, cleaning it after every use is a must. After the grill has cooled, scrape large food particles with a wire brush. Then spray the grilling rack with Dawn Grill Cleaner – a foam spray that penetrates even the toughest burnt-on grill grease. All you’ll have to do is quickly wipe down, rinse and store until the next use.

2. Clean hard-to-reach outdoor spaces

From the small grooves on the outdoor table that gather miniscule food particles, to the tiny gaps on the kids’ swing set that always attract sticky spills, outdoor items are full of small spaces that can be a nightmare to clean. Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Outdoor Pro is specially designed to help lift away tough grime with just water. It’s perfect for getting into hard-to-reach spaces because the water-activated micro-scrubbers reach into surface grooves, making cleaning a breeze. Always test first on an inconspicuous area with light pressure.

3. Clean tough outdoor surfaces

Warm weather is perfect for outdoor cleaning projects. For dirty outdoor surfaces like non-plastic patio furniture, gutters, grills, play sets and more, look for a cleaner formulated to tackle outdoor messes, such as Mr. Clean Outdoor Pro Multi-Purpose Spray. Be sure to spray on greasy and soiled areas and let the solution soak for extra tough soils. Then you can easily scrub away tough outdoor dirt, allowing you to spend less time cleaning and more time relaxing.
