Headstone Cleaning

This is my first lesson in headstone cleaning. The headstone on the left was cleaned last year by the Mr. Lentz and the historical society. I will be cleaning the one on the right.

Our buddy Mr. Tom Lentz has shown us the proper way to clean headstones, as many of them are extremely fragile. The only thing that can be used to clean them is water, and various low-impact hand tools. It is very time-consuming and tedious, and I caution everyone to NOT TRY THIS AT HOME, no matter how fascinated you may be. Failure to completely clean the stones can cause more problems than it solves. Also, there are several graveyard "clean-up days" scheduled throughout the year, where you can learn how to properly clean the stones without damaging them. Despite having done this a few times, we still always clean under supervision. :This paragraph was provided by Julia McCurdy whose post on headstone cleanings can be viewed on her blog juliamccurdy.com.
