How to use a Soot Sponge:
This sponge is a 3" x 6" x 1 1/2" "special" dry rubber sponge that scoops up and absorbs dirt and soot into its pores.
Because of their soft surface, dry cleaning sponges are ideal for removing loose soot and smoke from latex paint, blown ceilings, and acoustic tiles. The sponges are used dry and you should begin on the ceiling, since debris will drop down. Then move to the walls, again beginning at the top and working to the bottom using straight, parallel strokes that overlap a little. When the surface of the sponge becomes clogged with soot, simply remove surface layer by shaving with a razor blade to expose a new sponge surface.
Do Not wring out sponge with water or clean it or you will ruin the chemical treatment.
After you have removed as much of the smoke residue dry with both vacuuming (dusting or brushing) and the dry cleaning sponge, then put down a plastic drop cloth and wash these same surfaces with a warm, mild solution of a Orange Blossom citrus cleaner or Automated Cleaner Degreaser.
Apply liberally, according to directions, onto surface wash from the bottom up (this reduces streaking). Be sure to use a plastic drop cloth under work area to avoid staining of unaffected areas.
Wash and wipe down surfaces with a regular, wet sponge. Wash and wipe down surfaces with clean, Microfiber cloths. Then, rinse with water and wipe dry again.
Soot sponges are sold each or 36 per case if ordering a case.
