BRUSH UP ON GRILL CLEAN­ING

Best Health - - EATS -

If you still have a wire grill cleaner, it’s time for an up­grade. Af­ter many in­ci­dents of peo­ple swal­low­ing the bris­tles that be­come de­tached from the brushes and stuck to food, sur­geons urged peo­ple to throw them out and Health Canada launched a risk as­sess­ment. For­tu­nately, there are safe al­ter­na­tives.

1. Use a cedar scraper to re­move charred food from the grates.

2. Ball up alu­minum foil and use it to scrub the still-warm grates, us­ing heat-proof gloves to pro­tect your hands.

3. Slice an onion in half, stick a grilling fork in the round side and rub the cut side over the hot grates.
