How to easily clean your wood stove or fireplace glass

Glass Cleaner

After having a wood burning fireplace most of my life, I have tried a number of commercial products on the market with little success. I used to work for a heating and air conditioning contractor and I headed up the fireplace and wood stove sales. After years of selling the commercial cleaning products to my customer, an older gentleman told me how to clean wood stove glass the best way.. "Ashes Breaks down Ashes. " That's what he told me. Once I thought about it, it made perfect sense and that's how my wife and I have cleaned our fireplace glass every since.

Take a non-abrasive glass cleaner and spray down the glass. Do not wipe yet!

Spray down a crumpled up piece of newspaper moderately in one spot, then dip the wet part of the paper into your fireplace ashes.

Wipe the ash covered newspaper in a circular motion on the glass. It will create a paste and begin to break down the soot on the doors. After working across the glass, wipe off the paste.


Spray the doors one more time with glass cleaner and wipe down with either a fresh piece of newspaper or clean paper towel.
