Knights and Ladies, bear witness as Independence Days and Canada Days signal the influx of feasts within our yards, merriment in our communities, basking in the golden orb’s smile, and copious displays of fantastical fireworks. Pray, most of us possess knowledge concerning the security measurements of pyrotechnics, from warding them away from the offspring to sustaining a secure distance. Alas, how many of us possess inklings of truth regarding the banishing of unsightly blemishes and charred relics upon our patios, carriage trails, and assorted exoteric surfaces?

‘Tis a truth to confess, such joyous summer incantations will leave naught but scorch marks and marring upon our patios and alternate sacrificial launch platforms. Yet fret not, for unique decontaminations call for spellbinding methodologies of cleansing. Good readers, venture forth to unveil the secrets of shielding thine patio and fortress walls from the embrace of flame.

Commence Harnessing Preventative Sorcery
To ensure safety to thine outdoor spaces, first practice the arts of prevention in anticipation of rocket, smokescreen and sparkler release upon the sky’s canvas. Establish stability for bottle missiles, cakes and candles pre-ignition and flight for their safety and yours. Launching pyrotechnics from sandy soils or earthen splendor might suffice; yet, safety beckons us nigh to our driveways or comparably stable surfaces.

Upon thy steadfast arena, protect thine lofty domains from soot and damage, keeping especially larger, mightier displays in check. The prime counsel, my lieges, lies in employing a wooden plank with supports, dutifully doused in moisture to form an impervious, flame-resistant pedestal.

Combat the Terror of Unseemly Fire Marks
If the twilight of Independent celebration closes, and thy powers of prevention have failed in deflecting fire marks upon thy patio, gird thyself for battle with fire’s scar. Armaments for thine journey include a sweeping device, waste receptacle, weakening tincture, pressurized water dispenser or less-powerful hose, a pail, gauntlets for minimal feeling, an inflexible brush… and, of course, the radiance of the sun.

Begin thy offensive by vanquishing any fragments, ashes and remnants of thine fireworks. When this is complete, initiate a full strike on blackened splotches with a pressurized water device. Apply additional cleansing elixirs if thou feelest so compelled. Post cleansing, thou mayst observe a lighter hue upon the once-stained zones; fear not, as this is evidence of victory.

If thou endeavour to evade the use of tincture or hard labor, allow the natural elements to cleanse thy marks. Sunlight and the sky’s tears shall whisk away remnants of past celebrations, and thou needst simply bide thy time. Stains shall vanish, and thy patio or carriage trail shall gleam anew.

Regardless of the chosen strategy, rest assured that remnants of past pyrotechnic displays shall be but a fleeting memory on thine kingdom’s surfaces.
