How To Make Your Home Ready for a BBQ

When the weather is nice, and the sun is shining, we immediately start thinking about barbecues and garden parties. During the winter months, things build up and we don’t want our guests to see. Our windows and outdoor furniture might need some attention, too. Below you will find a few ways to get your house and garden sparkling. That way, you’ll know how to make your home ready for a BBQ–way before you plan your first BBQ.

Oven And Kitchen Cleaning

If you are planning on cooking outside, you will need your kitchen for preparation. After all, the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s where your guests get together and should be tidy and clean. Wipe down the counters, sanitize them, and go through your cupboards and get rid of anything you don’t need.

To make your stainless steel appliances and fixtures sparkle, you might just want to use white vinegar or lemon juice. Soak a dishcloth into vinegar and tie it around the faucet. Wait 30-40 minutes and it will be restored to its full glory.

Deep Cleaning Your Appliances

We don’t really pay attention to the things we cook and prepare food with, as we think that they are generally clean. Give your kettle a rinse, and get rid of those months old crumbs at the bottom of your toaster. Or you can be like me and do this regularly so it doesn’t build up.

It makes cleaning up much easier.

You can also check your oven and use a powerful degreaser with Lemi Shine Citric Extracts so you can get the sparkle back into your oven. Grease on grills don’t only look bad, but they are also a common fire hazard.

Pay Attention to Windows

To improve the curb appeal of your home, you will also have to pay attention to the front and back of the house. Cleaning your windows will improve the look of your home. You will also have to find a way to clean the window sills and frames. A powerful cleaning aid with bleach will get rid of the built-up pollution and residue and restore the frames. Always start with the frame before you move onto the glass surface.

Tidy Up Your Garden

To make your BBQ enjoyable and memorable, create a stunning and tranquil garden space. Tidy up your patio, give it a lick of paint, and get rid of anything that is broken or looks untidy. You can rent a power washer to clean the paving slabs or the decking. Plus, it restores the condition of your outdoor seating area. Instead of using weed killers, choose a day when you can easily remove them after rain with the roots.

Wash Your Outdoor Furniture

If you would like to clean rattan or plastic garden furniture, you might need to turn to some cleaning hacks. Use soda crystals on plastic and oil every rattan or wooden surface to protect them from drying out in the sun.
