Stainless steel BBQ grills are famously resistant to corrosion. However, when allowed to sit out and weather, or if only sporadically cleaned, they will develop a generalised yellowed appearance. The dull and discoloured areas are often mistaken for rust. Removal of this corrosion is a must to keep the BBQ in working order.

- Dish washing soap
- Club soda
- Distilled white vinegar
Add 1/4 cup of dish washing soap with 2 gallons of hot water in a bucket. Scrub the entire grill with a sponge using the hot soapy water. Rinse with hot water and let the unit dry for one to two hours.
Wipe any remaining yellowed areas with a rag soaked in club soda. Continue using club soda until the metal has returned to a normal stainless-steel shine. Pull the grill grating and scrub it with club soda as well. This will remove the heat discolouration. Rinse the grill with hot water and let it air dry.
Pour a small amount of distilled white vinegar on a rag and wipe the stainless steel surface down. This will bring back the original shine.
