Post by ctrav » Tue Sep 10, 2019 5:11 pm

Need some advice on how to clean up an oil spill from the pellet grill? This is what a section of my pool deck looks like 😡😩

Kitty litter, Simple Green, baking soda, scrub brush, and pressure washer. Rinse and repeat if necessary.

The Texas sun will help volatilize it eventually. Then buy you a grill mat, or better yet, a sheet metal oil spill pan.

Place under grill and remove oil ASAP. Sorry it happened to you, @ctrav!

I'd say to turn the doggie loose on it. But you may have a bigger mess to clean up from him. 😁

I actually like the wet look - just spread more oil on the rest of the deck to match! :thumbup:

I think regular Dawn dish soap should help and it's will not be harmful to the grass.

@ctrav

That looks a whole lot better.

Are you familiar with Barkeeper's Friend cleanser?

I bet that would finish it up nicely. It is made to clean up oily residues.

I get mine at Lowe's.
