Use this to make fire­place clean­ing a breeze

First For Women - - Home -

Noth­ing beats curl­ing up by the fire on a chilly night… if only sweep­ing up the ash the next day didn’t cre­ate such a mess! To make the process eas­ier, sprin­kle the con­tents of a few used tea bags over the soot in the morn­ing. Let them sit for 5 min­utes be­fore you be­gin sweep­ing. The damp tea leaves will weigh down the tiny par­ti­cles of ash, pre­vent­ing them from scat­ter­ing while you sweep up the mess. Much bet­ter!
