The weather outside has turned decidedly wintry, hail, sleet and bitterly cold. The perfect weather for curling up in front of a roaring fire with a mug of hot chocolate and reading a good book or watching a classic Christmas movie. Maybe even roasting chestnuts or toasting marshmallows.
But, you must ensure your fire is safe. Here's a handy tip I found over at Our Old Homestead. To keep your chimney clean, throw a handful of salt on the fire. This does not replace the yearly chimney cleaning that is recommended, but it does cut down on the length of cleaning that will need to be done each time.
