If you have a fireplace with a glass door in your home and you use it frequently you must have noticed how the glass gets darker and darker. This is due to the soot build up that's gathering each time you use the fireplace. To clean it we'll use an easy cleaning technique that is proven to work even on the most soiled fireplace doors.
Prepare the area for cleaning by placing old newspapers around the fireplace that will absorb any accidental spills of water and cleaning products. To start the cleaning first vacuum the glass door with the soft brush attachment. You'll need a good soft cleaning cloth or a rag that will not damage the glass. Wipe away the leftover loose soot and ashes.
Fill a bucket with lukewarm water and dampen the cleaning cloth in it. Spray a solid amount of glass cleaner on the glass door and start wiping it without using too much pressure. Reapply as much cleaning product as you need to remove the stains. When they're clean wipe the glass with a cloth dampened in clean water. Dry afterwards with a clean cloth.
This is the most common cleaning procedure that you can do. There is another one that is more unconventional but seems to provide good cleaning results. Prepare the area for cleaning and remove loose soot and ashes like in the first recipe. Next, moisten a cloth in some water and dip it in the ashes. Rub the ashes over the stained areas with the cloth. Ashes should have excellent stain removal properties according to many housekeepers. Once the stains are removed wipe the glass door with a cloth dampened in water. Dry the glass door with a soft cloth.
I can't say that the second recipe will work for you 100% but it's not that hard just to try it. And if it doesn't clean anything just go back to the first one that has been proven to work.
