I learned this amazing DIY cleaning hack many years ago when I helped a family friend clean new construction homes one summer in college.
YES! If you’ve ever tried to clean a slate fireplace surround, you know that it seems impossible and still looks dirty.
Oh, yes. Baby oil.
Don’t laugh. Brian and I have had this EXACT bottle since our very first home that had a slate fireplace surround (that’s 2003). Note the “new scent” – it’s been out a while!! We’re almost out. Time to get another bottle!!
#shareitsaturday tip of the week: You can clean almost anything that is black and you want a shiny finish with baby oil. I just wouldn’t recommend floors, that would be bad!!
Our fireplace is looking all pretty now. I just need to find the goof off to get rid of those paint marks from where we took the old mantle down. It’s in a box somewhere, lol.
