Recently, I spent an afternoon visiting a friend and opposite me sat a shiny log burner with a clean glass in the door and a pretty arrangement inside the firebox (remember, it is summer here).
I came home and sat in front of a dull log burner with very dirty glass, and felt like I was missing the mark somewhere.
Mr Google to the rescue! Lots of information on the best way to clean that dirty door.
Brush off any loose ash, then dip a paper kitchen towel in some water and squeeze out before dipping it into some of the fine ash in the firebox (you don’t want cinders as they may scratch the glass).
Now wipe off all that gunk from the glass – it is really that easy!
Use a clean damp paper towel to rinse off, and then another one dipped in 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water to remove the last smears.
Dry off with a clean dry paper towel.
The exterior was given a good wipe down with a damp cloth, but I haven’t managed any arrangement in the firebox. That is possibly just a bit too fancy for this household!
You learn something new every day 😊
