cleaning soot off rock fireplace surround
My rock wall fireplace looks dingy from 50 years of soot and dust. I have washed it off and that helped some, but I would like to use some sort of cleaner to get the rest of the grime off. I want to keep the fireplace as is, but would just like to brighten it up a bit.
After cleaning the stones, I would like to go over them with a sealer that would add a bit of gloss. I've done this with old dreary tile and it helped immensely.
Does anyone know of a product that will clean embedded grime off a rock fireplace? Thanks.
