Make it & Take it!  Grill Gear Scrub for Dad

 

With Father's Day fast approaching I wanted to share a quick and easy project for the griller and mess makers among us.  My guy put Grill Gear Scrub to the test and loved it, he compared it to the old school hand cleaner, Lava soap.  This is a gritty cleanse with lemony suds to cut through grease and grime on the grill, dishes or even hands.  It's very comparable to a commercially sold soft scrub but with all natural ingredients of course! Ladies, we know how to get grimy and dirty too so make an extra jar and keep it under the kitchen sink or on the workbench, it's a wonder on greasy pans and oily hands! Bonus! Clean the kitchen sink with it after the pots, pans, grills and marshmallow roasters are scrubbed clean!

Lemony {SOFT} Scrub with GRIT
Author: Camp Wander
....for grills, dishes and hands!
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup dishwashing liquid
  • 40 drops lemon essential oil
  • 1/2 pint jam jar glass or plastic
Instructions
  1. In a separate bowl, add coarse kosher salt, baking soda, dishwashing liquid and lemon essential oil, blend with a spoon and pour into a glass or plastic jam jar.
  2. Note: this is not a moisturizing scrub ~ follow with CW All Purpose Healing Salve to keep your hands soft AND clean!

Gather up the kiddos and let them make their own special gift for Dad or Gramps, it's really that easy!  Of course, feel free to change up the essential oils to any grease cutting citrus combination, have fun with it!

Thanks for posting…I think I’ll whip this up for my brothers. Auto mechanics and grease, oh my! Btw, what brand of dish liquid did you use? I have the “blue” stuff and it rhymes with “yawn”, will that work?

Yes, it could scratch depending on the finish of your grill. It’s a great cleaner for the greasy inside and grate not to mention greasy pans, dishes and hands :)

The grates and the inside of the grill! Fabulous for cleaning grill baskets and tools too :)

How do you use it? Is it safe for the inside and outside of the grill? Can you use it on the grates?

Lemon is a powerful deodorizer!

What could I add to this to take the smell of manure away? My nephew works at a place where they are turning cow manure into liquid fertilizer Showers take care of most of him but his hands get it ground in. The guys at work tell him to use Comet but both his wife and I put a stop to that as it will be hard on his skin. This looks like it will help clean . Will the lemon be enough to deodorizer? Thanks for the help.

I would like to make this scrub for the grill. I was wondering if i can substitute the dish liquid for liquid castile soap. I think it cleans better and makes hands soft too. I just know a little goes a long way. How much castile soap should i use??

Do you think Dawn Hand Renewal soap would help with moisturizing?

Thanks I will give this a shot. The first time I made this for a gift bag, I used the blue Dawn and it turned out to be this wonderful blue, good enough to eat. I hope the lemon will do the trick. I look to you and your sister, Jillee when i am looking for ideas or answers to problems. I think you two are the best and want to Thank You for all you do.
