I recently was invited to give a full day workshop in Manitowoc, Wisconsin through the Manitowoc County Historical Society. After the in-class portion of the workshop, the participants went out into a nearby cemetery to apply what they had learned. Several grave makers were successfully cleaned with care. Cleaning some of the larger gravestones was a real group effort (pictured above). Some scrub high; some scrub low; some scrub the back; some scrub the front. Just watch that over-spray! No one likes getting water in the face. :)
