Next up, clean the fireplace. Why? Well it was going to be the gift mantle for the shower, my spin on the gift table. Because I don't have any more tables, or room for one. And the mantle would be dead space anyway.
So I gave it a good wipe down with soapy warm water, so it would be ready for clean little baby gifts.
I think it worked out pretty well. Where do you put gifts? How do you clean a brick fireplace?
