CONVERSELY:

Preserving Ohio’s Cemeteries specifically stands against and does in no way condone the use of harmful aggressive and abrasive products and practices including using wire brushes, power washers or power tools such as Nyalox hard nylon brush wheels that rotate at high speeds when attached to power drills.

Preserving Ohio’s Cemeteries also stands against applying products such as bleach, or “Wet and Forget” to clean gravestones which cause irreversible damage.
