How to Clean Your Blackstone Grill & Eliminate Rust

How to Clean Your Blackstone Grill & Eliminate Rust

There's no denying the sheer joy of cooking on a Blackstone grill. From breakfast pancakes to dinner steaks, it's a versatile piece of equipment that transforms any meal into a culinary delight. However, even the hardy Blackstone isn't immune to the occasional onset of rust. But fear not, because we at BestDang.com are here to help you tackle this issue head-on.

Why Does Rust Happen?

Rust forms when iron or iron alloys, like steel, are exposed to moisture and air. And since grills are often outdoors and subjected to the elements, it's no surprise they can occasionally rust. But while it might seem daunting, rust is a conquerable foe.

Your Cleaning Toolkit:

For this task, you'll need a grill brush, non-abrasive cloth, mild dish soap, warm water, and, of course, BestDang's All-Purpose Cleaner. Why ours? Well, it's a powerful, eco-friendly solution that's fantastic at battling grime and stains, rust included.

Steps to Remove Rust from Your Blackstone Grill:

1. Safety Comes First:

Ensure your grill is cool and disconnected from any propane or power source before you begin.

2. Assess the Rust:

Determine the extent of the rust. Light surface rust can often be cleaned relatively easily, while deeper rust might require more work.

3. Scrape Off Loose Rust:

Using a grill brush, gently scrape off any loose rust from the affected areas. Be sure not to scratch or damage the surface.

4. Apply the Cleaner:

Spray the rusted areas with our BestDang All-Purpose Cleaner and let it sit for a few minutes. The hydrogen peroxide in our cleaner will work on the rust, helping to dissolve it without damaging your grill.

5. Scrub and Rinse:

Using a non-abrasive cloth, scrub the area where you applied the cleaner. Then rinse with warm water. You might need to repeat these steps a few times for more stubborn rust.

6. Dry Your Grill:

Thoroughly dry your grill after cleaning. Any leftover moisture can potentially cause more rust.

7. Regular Maintenance:

Prevention is always better than cure. Regular cleaning and maintenance can prevent rust from forming in the first place. Protect your grill from the elements when not in use, and always clean it after cooking to prevent build-up.

Conclusion:

Rust on your Blackstone grill might seem like a nuisance, but it's a problem that can be solved with the right approach and the right cleaner. BestDang's All-Purpose Cleaner, along with some elbow grease, can help keep your grill rust-free and ready for many more delicious meals. So, here's to rust-free grilling and great outdoor cooking with your Blackstone grill!
