Okay so now I have my fireplace grate outside and I am ready to start cleaning this up so that I can paint it eventually. So I want to start with a wire brush. A wire brush is really great. It gets in there and takes off any of those pieces that will really take onto the medal. So I will just kind of work it around and brush off all the areas. It is similar as brushing off a grill if you have ever done that and just continue on. Once I finish doing that I want to take this wet rag and this wet rag will get some of the finer residue that is on the grill and we will get some of the finer residue on the grate and I just continue on and try to get this as clean as possible so that my paint will have a good clean surface to stick to.
