If you have black build up on the glass of your fireplace or woodstove door, don’t worry, that’s normal. We often get asked, “How do I clean off my fireplace glass?”. While there are a variety of methods you can use, some involving harsh chemicals, others involving elbow grease and razor blades, we recommend the following:

  1. Dampen a soft cloth or newspaper
  2. Dab cool ashes from your ash bucket or fireplace on the cloth – remember that ashes can be hot for up to 48 hours after being removed from your fireplace or stove.
  3. Gently rub the cloth with cool ash in a circular motion over the stained glass
  4. Repeat as necessary
  5. Wipe off with a dry clean cloth

Believe it or not, it works!

P.S: While you are in there, take a look at your fireplace gasket – if you have any concerns, give us a call.
