    Yup, that order, but I would wash down the walls and woodwork if you have a solid fuel fire.

    I'd use sugar soap for walls and ceilings too personally and I use a bucket and a wall brush and a decorators sponge. Wash and scrub it on with the brush, wipe off with the sponge, that's for the walls. Woodwork needs less scrubbing as it's not absorbant paint.
