So, when cleaning the fire you most likely cringe at the thought because it’s such a messy job. Well I have a hot tip to help make this manly project move along a lot faster.
What do I do? Well firstly, I procrastinate about it for about an hour but you could always skip that step snd got straight to the oven cleaner. I don’t use when the glass is hot, so just be aware, it’s best when it’s cool!
You know that spray stuff I used to clean the oven with. I spray the glass on my fire door and leave for a while as I procrastinate some more. It may be an hour or so later when I come back, open up the door, clean out the ashes and sweep up the mess off the hearth. I then get a bucket of warm water and an old rag.
Now the oven cleaner has been on the glass for at least an hour so it should just wipe off easily with all the crusty muck. It takes a couple of wipe downs but then the glass is super clean again. If needed a wee bit elbow grease (give it good rub) might be required but within about 5 minutes your fire is cleaned and ready to go again.
Give it a try and let me know how it goes!!! Stay healthy peeps!!
