    Sealing a fireplace.

    I don't use my fireplace now, and despite having a new flue installed and pulling it shut, I still notice a slight draft. I'd like to seal the fireplace, but don't want the solution to leave a residue in case I want to use it down the line. I cute some 1/2 plywood to fit in the top of the fireplace (about waist hight if you're standing in front of it, except inside the fireplace itself).

    Can I use some sort of caulk or foam that will block the draft, but not leave a residue in case I need/want to remove this solution and light a fire in down the road?

    Shouldn't be a problem. Look for something you would use for temporarily sealing windows in the winter (removable caulking).

    Additionally make sure you put a sign in the fireplace not to use it.
