|Cleaning Fireplace Irons|
1. Once your fireplace irons have cooled down wipe off any of the ash, wood or coal with a damp cloth.
2. To help prevent any rust from forming rub the fireplace irons down with a mineral oil.
3. Wipe down any brass items with a damp cloth and allow them to air dry. For any engraved brass you will want to use a soft tip toothbrush that is dipped in a all purpose cleaner. Make sure to check the all purpose cleaner regardless to make sure it is safe for brass.
4. For any tarnish seen on your brass, purchase a commercial brass cleaner and use a soft tip toothbrush to help remove it.
