Goo Gone BBQ Grill Cleaner
By: Amy Jacquin

The barbecue grills get a work-out this time of year... And so do we, when it comes to cleaning them!

But Goo Gone claims to make it easy, if you use their BBQ Grill Cleaner. We see if they're just blowing smoke, in this Does it Work test.

This is a heavily used grill in desperate need of cleaning. We try to shorten that chore by using Goo Gone's BBQ Grill Cleaner.

First, directions say to brush off as much of the loose, charred mess as possible. Then simply saturate the grill, and let it sit. We only spray half the grill, leaving the other half for comparison.

It says to let it sit for 10 minutes. Or, if it's heavily soiled, to cover with a damp towel and let it sit for 30 minutes.

This one is definitely "heavily" soiled, so we cover it with a couple of layers of damp paper towels, and will check back in 30 minutes.

Time passes, and we see just how well Goo Gone's BBQ Grill Cleaner works... or doesn't work!

"Gently brush away the dirt," Amy Jacquin reads directions. "I don't think so!"

Not only do we brush, we scrape. And still the charred mess remains. Directions say you may have to reapply... so we do.

Another 30 minutes pass, and we start scrubbing again.

"I don't see much difference," Amy says as she works.

Finally, directions say to rinse thoroughly. This helps wash away a bit more of the mess...but overall, we're disappointed.

"This is the side we sprayed," Amy points out. "Most of the big stuff was knocked off with a plain brush. But you can see it took off some of the gunky stuff. Some, but not all."

An hour of soaking, and the grill still isn't very clean. We give the $6 of Goo Gone BBQ Grill Cleaner a D.
