Cleaning a Gas Grill

I am looking into cleaning my gas grill for the first time. I reading where soap and water works well for scrubbing the flavorizer bars and grates. The websites I am reading advise not to use a dishwashing liquid that is lemon or citrus-based. So what is harm in using a lemon scented degreaser?

Most likely it will leave a residue or may have a reaction with the grill coating. It may also smell funny when you first fire it up. I don't think it will do any harm to grill or food.

There are two schools to grill cleaning. One is to never clean it, but use the starting high heat setting to burn off previous grease and burned on food and use a wire brush to scrap it. Then at the end of the season do an overall cleaning. That's my method.

Others do thorough cleaning after each use. That seems to me to defeat the fun and spontaneous of grilling.

There are commercial cleaners meant just for grill. Available at most vest and apron stores.
