What Is The Best Way To Clean My Fireplace Glass Doors?

Over time with extensive use, soot and ash build-up can stain the glass on your fireplace door. This grime is literally baked onto the surface of the glass, and can be difficult to remove if you don't clean your doors regularly. 

Fortunately, there are some terrific products out there that are formulated to remove creosote and other forms of residue quickly and effectively! Depending on the heating application that you have, you can get a formula that is specifically designed for tempered or ceramic glass. Here are some of the cleaning products that we know and trust:

  • Clear Flame Glass Door Cleaner: safe to use on tempered and ceramic glass, as well as brass, enamel, and painted or lacquered surfaces!
  • Hearth Glass Creme Cleaner: safe to use ceramic glass only! Can be used on stainless steel surfaces. NOT for use on tempered glass or plastic! We have a kit available too - includes a microfiber sham for professional cleaning results!
  • Speedy White Hearth & Stove Cleaner: safe to use on tempered and ceramic glass, plastics and vinyl, but NOT recommended for brass, aluminum, or slate!

No matter which product you opt for, there are some steps to take in order to get your fireplace glass door looking like new.

SUPPLIES:
  • Wood ash vacuum or shop vac (a regular household unit will blow ash particles back into the room)
  • Glass cleaner
  • Soft cloths
  • Bucket of warm water
WHAT TO DO:
  1. Before beginning, make sure that your fireplace glass has completely cooled!
  2. Vacuum any loose soot, ash, or dust from the firebox and glass.
  3. Moisten a cloth with warm water. It is important that you keep this cloth moist throughout the cleaning process in order to avoid scratching the glass. 
  4. Apply your cleaner to the cloth.
  5. Rub the cleaner over the glass , playing extra attention to the areas that are displaying heavy build-up.
  6. With short circular motions, apply gentle pressure to remove stains.
  7. Reapply as needed. 
  8. Once your fireplace door glass is clean, wipe clean with a new, damp cloth.
  9. Dry with a clean cloth.

While these products are very effective, this process may take some time and effort depending on the amount of build-up. You may find yourself removing the stains, layer by layer, until they are gone. Be sure to take breaks as necessary. Regular cleanings will minimize heavy staining.
