    Clean off competition

    Compared goo gone, gps 66, simple green, 409 and "super clean"

    Thats the order they finished in. goo gone really powerful, good foaming, dangerous to use on stone, aluminum, etc.
    next two about the same.
    last two not so much.

    Any others you like much better?

      What exactly are you cleaning? Sort of related, but I found out a few years ago (after parking too close to some pine trees one day) that the original orange Goo Gone does an amazing job of removing tree sap from vehicles without damaging the paint. Literally wipes right off with a paper towel.

        I am mainly cleaning the grates and greasy interior surfaces. The exteriors are easy to clean with many products. The original goo gone is great but this stuff is pretty caustic. Enough so that they caution you to avoid aluminum and stone... yike, it dissolves rocks. (ok, Hcl makes short work of limestone). Its active ingredients are Diethylene glycol monobutyl ether and Poly(oxy-1, 2-ethanediyl), alpha-undecyl-omega-hydroxy. I am guessing those aren't good for you.

          Yeah, when I saw that it is oven cleaner I knew that was a lot different than the original. Anyway, my electric pressure washer is what I use instead of any chemicals. That and my newly acquired CharGon scraper, followed by wiping down with a paper towel.

        Simple Green or Traeger's All Natural Grill Cleaner are the only things I've ever sprayed inside of a grill and I don't really even like doing that very well so I usually do a really hot burn after I use them. Normally, I try to let heat do most of the hard work and then just scrape with a plastic putty knife and a rag.

        I haven't tried the Grill Blazer for cleaning yet though, that could be fun. It sure will light a pile of charcoal quickly.

          For stainless steel I just started using Spray 9. It is AMAZING!

            Cook's Illustrated has a DIY Goo Gone recipe. I have no experience with it and I'm not sure it's up to the grill cleaning task, but at least it won't take your fingerprints with the goo.

              I just throw my kettle grates in my gasser, turn it up on “hot as the sun” and bake the grime off. Then just scrape down the inside of the kettle bowls with a 2” brass putty knife.

                I use the Plumber's Choice 30 inch one, Dadof3Illinois . (Link in fracmeister's post)

                It works nicely for my 24" WSCGC grate.

                Yep...whatever doesn’t get obliterated by the heat can eventually be blasted off by the pressure washer. The only chemicals that go inside my cookers are edible.

              My goto is a combo of these:
              1. Wire wheels, either wire or brass depending on the surface
              2. Citrus based cleaner like Zep’s
              3. Water to rinse.
              4. Oil to re-season.
