How do I clean cast iron grate above gas flame on a gas stove? Thanks.

I just recently cleaned mine with a homemade cleaner and a steel wool 'sponge' and they look great! The cleaner I made was basically vinegar, baking soda, and lemon mixed with some hot water. It may take a bit of elbow-grease, but it works well and it's super affordable! (09/28/2009)
Put them in the dishwasher. (09/30/2009)
I have taken really bad ones outside and used auto degreaser on them. (09/30/2009)
If you have the thick heavy grates, stack them in the bottom of the oven and set to self clean for two hours. Then just rinse them in soapy water when they cool. Be sure to remove your oven racks before setting self clean cycle. I have cleaned ours this way for years. You will laugh at the people who use ammonia in a bag. (11/04/2009)
