I’m sure you’ve all run into this before. You got a great deal on a glass faced wood stove, but the glass has an inch of creosote built up on it. Or you put in a brand new stove just last week and already you can’t see the fire through the thick layer of black. Fireplace glass is notorious for getting dirty fast and needing to be cleaned often.
So what to do?
Do you give up on ever seeing the warm glow from the fireplace ever again? Do you spent hours scraping or give in and use harsh chemicals to soak it clean? Think those are your only options?
Well have I got the trick for you!
Its all natural, and I’m sure you already have everything you need at home. Best of all, its fast!
This is the difference in my stove glass before and after cleaning it:
I probably wouldn’t of even needed 5 minutes to finish except I was taking pictures for y’all! This process is seriously as simple as it gets.
1. Next time your cleaning out the stove, pull out a nice piece of charcoal and set it aside until you have a minute to clean the glass. Who am I kidding? Of course your doing it now!
2. Grab a clean rag or paper towel, and a small dish of water. Open your stove to see what kind of mess you are working with.
3. Wet your charcoal and rub it over the inside of the glass.
4. Continue wetting the charcoal and using it to scrub the glass until you can see through the glass. It will be covered in streaks still, so don’t worry if it’s not clean yet!
5. Wet your rag and wipe it over the glass. Most of the grime and charcoal should come off at this point. Take wet charcoal to any places you may have missed on the first scrub, then wipe again with the wet rag.
Ta-da! Your fireplace glass is now sparkly clean! So thank your grandma and enjoy the peaceful glow of a good fire 🙂
