(NAPSI)—Summer is here and it's time for backyard barbecues! Before your
guests arrive, check these four backyard maintenance tasks off your to-do
list to ensure your yard is looking good.
Clean Your Barbecue
To prevent food from sticking to your barbecue grills, rub cooking oil on
the grates before you start. After you're done barbecuing, use warm, soapy
water to clean the grates with a wire brush.
Give Outdoor Furniture a Pick-Me-Up
With all furniture, check for wear and tear that may have occurred during
winter. Clean plastic furniture and chair or couch cushions simply with a
cloth or soft scrub brush dipped in a mix of water and dish detergent. Some
outdoor cushions can be thrown in the washer so check the tags.
Check Power Equipment
Since power equipment most likely hasn't been used in months, turn it on
to make sure it's working properly. Some equipment may need to be lubricated
to run smoothly again. Easily lubricate the moving parts of a lawn mower with
WD-40 EZ-REACHTM. It has an
8-inch, flexible straw that bends and keeps its shape to get WD-40® Multi-Use Product into hard-to-reach
places, like in and around the blade.
Tidy Up Your Lawn
Trim large plants, hedges and bushes that had a growth spurt during the
spring, and remove dead limbs from trees. Remove leaves and other debris from
the gutters around your home, and remove weeds from the lawn and garden. You
may need to reseed some areas of your lawn as well.
With the completion of these four tasks, guests will be enjoying your
backyard barbecues all summer long.
