Throughout the holiday season, we will be trawling official club shops for the items that will make the very best gift ideas for the very worst people on your list. This week: Borussia Dortmund grill cleaning spray.

Football clubs will sell anything they can slap their logo on, but few officially licensed items will disappoint and confuse your least favorite person on that holiday gift list more than BVB grill cleaner.

Why does this exist? Because grill cleaning really is a task that requires the speed and precision for which Dortmund are famous. Also, there's a good chance Jurgen Klopp uses it as mouthwash.

Here's the official club shop's sales pitch:

The BVB Grill Cleaner is a practical helper when cleaning up after a barbecue. Tough residues from grilling and frying on the barbecue grill can be removed simply and effortlessly using this spray cleaner. The Grill Cleaner can even be used in all baking and hot-air equipment to polish the devices back up to maximum shine. The BVB Grill Cleaner 'Meisterglanz' comes in a 500 ml spray bottle. Background information: Not suitable for aluminium.

Priced at €5.95, how can you turn that down?!

But if you're shopping for a Bayern Munich fan you don't like, I would recommend going with the Borussia Dortmund championship trophy cleaning spray instead.
