Tips to keep the glass clean on a wood burning stove

  • Wipe down the glass with wet newspaper between fires to keep on top of any blackening of the glass.
  • Ensure to keep any air vents open that are required for the air wash system.
  • Burn dry, low moisture content wood.
  • Never leave the fire to smoulder, which can produce excess smoke and can increase the rate in which the glass starts to blacken.
  • Build and maintain fires more towards the back of the stove.
  • Always start with kindling when you warm up the stove and the flue.
  • Use hardwood logs rather than softwood.
  • Make sure the temperature is high to reduce the deposits on your glass.
