Cleaning the glass on a woodburner

The woodburning stove we have at home is the popular Jotul F3. It has the airwash system which, in theory at least, keeps the stove glass clean. In our experience however some log types are worse than others. Last year’s oak, although it seemed fully seasoned, could have done with another year. Every time we burn it the glass gets very dirty.

It’s good to see the flames

Part of the pleasure of owning a woodburning stove in the dark winter evenings is to see the flames and their comforting glow. It’s easy to get rid of loose carbon from the glass – just a piece of screwed up newspaper will do the trick. But burned-on tar and creosote can be very hard to remove.

The video below shows the glass on our Jotul being cleaned with Vistal Multi Surface Cleaner. It is quick and effective and is safe to use without gloves, has no smell and contains no strong chemicals.

We use Vistal to clean the ceramic hob, and the oven, as well as many other jobs in the kitchen and bathroom. As a result, we have far fewer bottles of cleaning products under the sink.
