Removing Soot from Porcelain Figurines

My father had a house fire and there were Hummel figurines and other porcelain/clay products inside. How do I get the soot off?

Call your insurance company and they can give you a list of names and phone numbers of companies who do fire smoke/soot cleanup for their professional advice on any items.

Try spraying with window cleaner and then rinse. This worked for me. Some things I had to use a soft baby toothbrush for crevices.
