Every five years Mrs Baker's association recommends that the iron work around her home needs to be freshened up. It was the owner's responsibility to clean these metal gates of dirt, bird droppings and anything else that might make it difficult for the painters to do their work. Mrs Baker called my repair service to take care of her gate.

This post shows the six steps of removing any dirt and bird droppings on the iron gate. 

Step 1: Fig.1 shows Ajax® liquid soap used to clean the birds dropping and dirt from the metal gate.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows drop several drops of Ajax® cleaner were placed into this water pail.
