I use a glass cleaning product made by Rutland. It works great!! You may have to work a little on the real bad areas but I do recommend this product. I didn't want to used a razor blade in fear it may scratch the glass. Good luck.
Thanks for the tip. I'll put it on my shopping list. Thanks,
Yup , Windex works good , and i always use newspaper to wipe it off , its not so soft as like bathroom tissue so its schrubbing , and never would scratch the glass , there is in Canada a glass and stove cleaner for sale , the brand is Timber, its from Kel Kem Ltd ,in Pickering Ontario,it works good , but is a chemical base , so i used it only when the glass is really brown/black
Here's an easy and free way to clean your wood stove glass.
Do this when your stove is cold.
Get several damp paper towels and several dry ones. Open stove door and place some dry paper towels or newspaper under the door to catch any ash that falls off. Dip a damp paper towel in the ashes in your stove and rub the glass until all the ash is smeared around. Continue cleaning the glass with your damp paper towels until glass is clean. You might have to dip into the ash several times and really scrub if your glass is super dirty, but the ash will clean the glass completely with enough elbow grease. Afterwards dry the glass completely and enjoy.
I don't recommend putting the damp paper towels in your stove if you plan on making a fire immediately as they tend to cause your fire to smolder and get your glass dirty again. Hope this helps. Karen
I use a cleaning product called "Krud Kutter" on the inside of our Fireplace glass doors. Just spray it on and in only a couple of minutes it will desolve the black , baked on buildup. Works better than anything I have tried.
