5 Tips for a Safe & Healthy Cookout

5 Tips for a Safe and Healthy Cookout

Are you planning to enjoy a barbecue this grilling season? Here are some easy tips to help you safely enjoy your day.

1. Whether you need to give your grill a good scrub before cooking, or you're cleaning up afterwards, do not use a wire grill brush.  Stray bristles can come loose, make their way into food and cause injuries. Check out some wire grill brush alternatives or try using a ball of aluminum foil.

2. Keep uninvited guests away with a homemade insect repellent and plants that naturally repel insects.

3. Be sure to completely extinguish all grills or fires and shut off the propane valve if you're using a gas grill.

4. Leftovers? Store them immediately and choose sustainable storage solutions such as glass containers and reusable plastic wrap alternative.

5. Use Allen's Naturally to clean up! Our Fragrance-Free Dish Soap will cut through great while being gentle on your hands. The Multi-Purpose Surface Cleaner is a non-toxic, fast-drying way to clean all your surfaces in a snap.
