...because home doesn't happen overnight.

*THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.*

Congrats to Devon! Her hubby is a computer engineer so she is free to know nothing about computers. Jealous!

Every year for Father’s Day I clean something of HH’s that he normally doesn’t clean and thus is quite disgusting. Usually, it’s the inside of his why-won’t-you-die 15-year-old truck. This year it was his grill. You see, HH appreciates clean things but he’s not really into the actual cleaning part. That’s okay. I kind of like cleaning and HH likes my cleaning. So, there you go. And they lived happily ever after.

grill1

At our house, the grill is man territory. When the grill is on, men flock to it like moths to a flame. With beer in hand. When you ask “how much longer?” the response is “one more beer.” I’m ashamed to say this but I don’t even know how to use our grill. I’m pretty sure it’s easy. I mean, I can hold a spatula in one hand and a beer in another. But, yeah, I’ve never used the grill myself.

beforegrill

The poor grill. The before pictures make it look better than it was. The grill itself isn’t that old but we haven’t taken very good care of it. It’s lived in the dirty garage and, most recently, outdoors – uncovered. The grease catcher thingy {I told you I don’t know grills} had never been emptied. Yuck. To tell you the truth, I’m slightly appalled knowing we ate food off of this grimy apparatus. Solidified grease was everywhere. Ashes were everywhere. Dirt and leaves, too. It was time to do something.

grill2

I removed everything I could – the grates, the burner protectors, the grease catcher thingy.

grill3

I threw the loose parts in the yard and filled a plastic storage bin with hot, soapy water. Then I soaked the grease ridden pieces and scrubbed them with a wire brush. The bin worked great because it was large enough to submerse the grates in. Oh, and I unintentionally found a short cut for degreasing…the hot, hot sun helped liquify the grease. I was able to pour grease out of the grease catcher thingy before soaking it. Bonus.

I rinsed everything with the hose then let it dry in the sun while I turned my attention to the grill. It was at this point in time, that I suffered three bee stings. THREE!

Hear me out, bees. So there’s this rumor going around that we humans could get rid of you permanently if we wanted. I consider myself a bee lover. I’m not afraid of bees. I like honey. I appreciate all the work you do for flowers and crops. I don’t spray insecticides or whatever it is that kills you. I don’t swat at your kind just because you have the potential to sting me. I leave you alone. So, why sting me? Is your judgment of character that bad? Or is every human your enemy now? Maybe stinging humans at random isn’t a wise choice with possible extinction looming on your horizon. Just sayin.’

grill4

I hosed the grill off but, as you can see, it didn’t do much. I grabbed some Mr. Clean Outdoor Pro and several microfiber cloths and got to work. I tell ya, the bald guy really knows how to cut through grease and grime.

grill5

Within minutes, the grill was looking like something men should be flocking to.

grill6

And I was starting to think I could eat food off of it again.

grill7

I couldn’t rightfully put such a shiny specimen on a dirty patio. Nooooo. I just had to go one step further and unload the grilling patio of deck scraps {we’re getting so close to having a deck!} and hose it down too. Then I was done.

Next year, I’m thinking grill cover for Father’s Day.

“P&G Me!” I would LOVE to get a Lowe’s card and cleaning products! There are so many things on my summer to do list, this would be an amazing help! And I am a little afraid to use the miter saw–I’d rather somebody else mess up all our angles! But that is a fear I’m going to conquer next month!

P & G me! I’m ashamed to admit that despite having my DSLR for over a year, I still use it like a point and shoot.

P&G ME! – And I can’t use our grill either.

20.June.2013

P&G me! I don’t know how to use the grill either. That and the weed whacker thingy. We just don’t get along.

Such a good idea!! I never know what to get my husband as a gift – cleaning something for him is so smart!

20.June.2013

P&G me! I can’t use most of the things you mentioned, except the toothbrush, I know how to use that!

20.June.2013

P&G ME!

I don’t know how to use the grill either, a few days ago I decided I would try it out, so I asked my hubby to start it for me (the idea of starting it scares me!) and then I attempted to grill a few chicken breasts and burgers…. after that disaster, my hubby said if I ever tried to grill anything again, he’s going out for dinner. My kiddos likened the burgers to cardboard discs. -.-

P&G me! I can’t use the alarm system in my apartment – or I should say I’ve never tried to use it because I’m afraid I’m going to accidentally set it off and end up with a dozen firefighters banging down my door.

P&G ME!! I don’t know how to use our fancy Blue Ray player. That thing drives me nuts. =)

P&G me! I can pretty much figure out how to use a lot of stuff, but right now I am trying to finish some shelves and am scared to use my friend’s table saw without help.

20.June.2013

P&G ME!
There are so many things I wish I knew how to do including driving a stick shift and a sewing machine. I am probably closer to leaving the art of machine sewing, it also scares me more.

20.June.2013

P&G ME! I didn’t know how to use the lawn mower until this last Monday. And I still don’t know how to use the weed wacker so our lawn looks rather scraggly around the edges.

20.June.2013

P&G Me! I wish I could use our chainsaw. Rightly so, it scares the crap out of me!

P&G ME! I can’t ever figure out our fancy TV remote control.

20.June.2013

P&G me! My husband would freak out if i cleaned the grill grates! actually, the “grime” on them is good. it protects the metal, prevents sticking and acts like “seasoning” much like on a cast iron pan. a grill is also by nature self-cleaning due to the heat of the flame. what we do is wait until the grill is lit and hot, brush the grates down with a wire brush (made specifically for the job) to get off any bigger pieces left behind. then rub it down with something lightly oiled, held with tongs, like a paper towel (it won’t burn if you move fast) or we like to use an onion half for flavor. it’s also that “grime” that helps leave behind those great “grill marks” on burgers! but the outside of your grill looks fantastic!

P&G ME! Sadly I don’t know how to use our lawnmower. In my defense, it’s quite old and I’d probably have to warm up with stretches to start it. :/

P&G ME! I need to figure out how to use the new table saw to finish the Father’s Day present from 4 years ago.

20.June.2013

“P&G ME!” For me, it’s the weedeater. I can’t use that thing to save my life. I think we may have the same grill as you. We recently went to Florida on vacation and we were gone for 9 days. Not only did we leave the cover off the grill while we were gone, but we left the grill open. It rained A LOT while we were gone and when we came back it was completely clean on the inside. Well, it was clean until we opened the doors where the tank is and all of the gunky grime was in that area (eww gross) but the cooking surfaces were clean. Yay for rain!!

20.June.2013

P&G Me! I can’t drive a stick shift… it’s on my bucket list to someday definitely probably learn though…you know, for emergencies or … racing? It just seems like so much extra work to do just to drive though!

P&G ME! I’m a bit challenged when it comes to a sewing machine, I want to sew, I just can’t figure that darn machine out.

Sadly, there’s more than one answer to this one, but *one* thing I don’t know how to use is our lawn mower. Pretty sure I couldn’t get that puppy started if my life depended on it!

Sadly, our grill is in a worse state. And I would love a nice, shiny one like yours. And, I am embarassed to admit I have no idea how to use it!! Great post!

reply )

20.June.2013

P&G ME! I don’t know how to use the power edger I bought to clean up the edges of our sidewalks…I kinda used it around the flowerbed (no concrete there!), but I’m afraid of slicing that blade against the cement of the walkways and have no idea what I’m doing and nothing really seems to make it look good, whatever I try!?!
Your grill looks AWESOME now! That flat surface on the right looked black before (I thought it was some sort of griddle pan built on!), but then it shined up!!!

reply )

20.June.2013

P&G me! Let’s see, so many things: sewing machine, DSLR, but the one thing I really need to get to work on is driving, I am too distracted!

P&G ME! I don’t know how to use a circular saw. Not that I can’t learn, I’m just TERRIFIED of it!! I can use the grill, the lawn mower, electric hedge trimmers, most electric power tools, but I just can’t get comfortable with the circular saw. Nope.

reply )

20.June.2013

P&G me! I’m ashamed to admit I’ve never once used a lawn mower. I keep thinking it was a strategic move on my husband’s part not to teach me… now I’m stuck in the house with a six-year-old and a two-year-old while he’s out riding the mower in the sunshine!

reply )

20.June.2013

P&G me! I have never used a lawnmower but this is intentional- I don’t ever want mowing the lawn to become one of my chores.

Grill, yes. Apple TV? Still confuses me. The remote to that makes my laptop play music (unintentionally). I thought apple products were suppose to be easy!

Great job on the grill and thanks for the motivation to clean mine. I ate with food off my ‘before picture’ grill last night. ick.

My husband is way more handy than I am, despite the fact that we are both engineers, and I actually lost my ability to do a lot of technical things after we got married because he was just always there to do it for me. I still can’t drive a stick shift and I just learned how to use our coffee pot a month ago (we’ve had it for over three years, but I just don’t drink coffee).

P&G ME! Yup, it’s my guy’s stick-shift truck. So any schlepping I need–from craigslist prizes too big for my car to a yard of mulch–he has to do the driving. (I promised to learn to drive it before he bought it, but there’s no statute of limitations on that promise, so maybe next summer????) Also most of the power tools in the garage-workshop.

Something I don’t know how to use?… any tool, which is sad because I live alone. I just realized I have a cordless drilll which is a positive.

Yay! thx for the opportunity to win! but let’s see… there are a lot of things i guess i don’t know how to do – haha! but just from the list, stick shift = nope. i have been “told” but have never “tried”. growing up we always had automatics my mom has disabilities and then later my hubby always gave me the excuse that his car was not good to lean on b/c it was loose in the gears and it had to be babied so he didn’t want me to strip it out (it’s now history). now the truck & wagon we have are both automatic… that is my biggest “i wish i could do that”.

Hi Dana! Love the post. P&G me! My hubby is a big fan of making me figure out how to do things myself for when he is gone, and since moving back to the farm 2 years ago I have finally learned how to use a riding mower, skid loader, weedeater, four wheeler and multiple power tools.I grew up on a farm but my dad thought girls belonged in the kitchen so I never learned before. I however do NOT know how to drive a tractor, yet. I’ve heard rumors that I’m gonna learn this fall, yikes! Something about driving thousands of pounds of grain in a VERY expensive machine that isn’t mine freaks me out!

P&G ME! I also don’t know how to use our grill, but my biggest enemy is the lawn equipment. The mower, weed eater, leaf blower – you name it. If it has a pull cord start I’m undoubtedly not strong enough to start the darn thing, so even my most motivated attempts to help out go down the drain before I can even get started. Although I do know how to drive a stick shift. Mark one in the win column for me!

20.June.2013

P&G Me! I’m with you, no clue on how to use the grill – or the sewing maching – or anything but the “auto” setting on the DSLR camera. I can only drive a manual transmission when it’s 2AM and I end up having to be the sober one to drive home from the bar if we take my husband’s car. I do alright but I get so nervous. Luckily it’s once a year – if that.

P&G ME! Funny you should mention stick shift…I have been TRYING to learn to do this for the past few months, and I’m SO. DAMN. FRUSTRATED! I think things are just harder to learn as you get older, right? So for now I’m cursed with 2 fun cars in my garage that I can’t drive…

I consider myself a clean person – cleaning has a certain degree of satisfaction. But when I just moved out of my old rental, I realized that in the almost five years that I lived there (with two different roommates), I’m pretty sure it was only cleaned once (as evidenced by the old bottle of Easy Off I didn’t know was under the sink). Yes, we’d clean it when something spilled over like pie filling or what-have-you, but never did an honest-to-goodness, full on clean. Embarrassing. But OH you should’ve seen the grease that came off it after using some of that Easy-Off Oven cleaner! Shocking. And so satisfying!

Lesson learned – don’t forget your

We’ve been on a roll with renovations in our first home & the hubby finally decided that it was time we owned a table saw for some upcoming projects (installing hardwood floors & building a reading nook).

My mom helped me thread it once at her house, and I made a skirt, then took it home with great aspirations. 10 years later, I still have the same sewing machine in a closet, and have never ONCE been able to thread that thing on my own. That skirt was the last and only thing ever made.

I am actually a Mama who can grill. It started out as a hubby thing but we live in Texas and sometimes he was gone and I did not want to heat the house up so I learned to grill. I can even grill pizzas. I was quite proud of figuring that out. :)

P&G ME! I’m embarrassed to admit that I have no idea how to clean my bathtub. It’s disgusting and after having a baby I have really given up on finding time to get to 100% clean! Also, I also don’t know how to use any outdoor lawn equipment. I do it on purpose.

I don’t know how to use a can opener. I have one that Pampered Chef makes that is the only one I can actually use. All others, I’m in the dark. Like pitch black. Blind.

P&G ME! I’m pretty good with most things (the grill, air compressor, nail gun, lawnmower, etc). I credit my dad for that (he used to make me rotate his tires so that if I ever got a flat, I’d know how to change a tire! Ugh!). However, I’m ashamed to admit, I don’t know how to work my scanner!

P&G ME! I can drive a stick shift! But I saw an episode of Modern Family the other day where they were lighting the pilot light (or something?) on the water heater. We are buying a house this month and I hope I never have to do that. It freaks me out.

When my husband went to Iraq a few years ago, I recorded some of the best video of our 3 small children so I could send it to him. (something I usually don’t take the time to do).

I know how to use most of what you mention, ESPECIALLY the grill. But I’m still working on drill skills. Too often I’ve wound up with a drill bit stuck in the wall. Once I couldn’t get it out and just left it…hung the picture over it to avoid the wrath (well, teasing) of my man =/

You may not believe this….but I just finished cleaning our grill!! Yes. Of course, you did a much better job than I did. But ours was pretty icky. And, I agree with you. Now I think I can actually eat something off of it and feel really good about it!! :)
BTW, I was just on my way in to shower and, of course, sat down at the computer….and before you know it….I found this post. Kinda freaky, since I just cleaned my grill. Really. I’m not kidding. Seriously.
