There’s nothing quite like the start of summer. Finally, the trees are thick with leaves; the sun is shining, and life is everywhere. It’s enough to put you in the mood for a few home DIY projects. So let’s get started.
Dust Off The BBQ
No doubt your BBQ has been sat in the shed, gathering dust for most of the year. But now that it’s summertime, it’s BBQ season once again. And that means it’s time to get the BBQ out. But there’s just one snag; it’s dirty. No problem: cleaning a BBQ is easy.
The first step is to take off the hood and separate the grill. The grill is usually the dirtiest part of the BBQ. The best strategy is to grab a wire brush and some soapy water and start scrubbing. Once you’ve done that, move on to the other surfaces with a sponge or a towel. The last step is to let the BBQ run for a few minutes, before finally applying a touch of cooking oil to the cooking surfaces. Ultimately, you should end up with a BBQ that looks a lot cleaner, if not brand new.

Organize Your Icecream Space
So what can you do? Unplug your freezer and leave it outside in the open to defrost for half a day. Once the ice has melted, get rid of any excess water and then refill with food. At the end of the process, you should find that you’ve created a lot more space on the inside. And that means lots more room for ice cream or even cupcakes!
