Over the years I have tried m.a.n.y. ways to clean the soot off our glass fireplace doors. We have a wood burning insert so the doors are always closed when we have a fire. (I HATE having an insert. I had rather see, hear, feel and smell the fire than to have the abundant heat an insert supplies.)
When I last purchased a product to clean my glass top stove, I bought Weiman Cook Top for the first time. It worked well for my stove, as has every product I have tried on my stove top. But...as I was reading the directions for use, I happened to notice these words: "Also excellent for cleaning glass fireplace doors". Oh my! It cleaned the soot off quickly, with very little effort.
Currently I have a fireplace candelabra instead of logs in the fireplace. (Did I mention I hate that insert?) It looks pretty with the doors shut or when lit with open doors.
I am so glad I read that one phrase on the back of the bottle of Weiman Cook Top! Head on over to see Shannon for more great Works For Me Wednesday tips!
