cleaning the glass on a gas fireplace

joyyJanuary 3, 2009

the inside of the glass is really foggy looking - about the top 3 or 4 inches - and looking at it is really bothering me. it's really noticeable whether we have it turned on or off.

i'm assuming the door need to come apart to clean it. is this something i can do myself or do i need to call in someone who works with these things (because i know very little about natural gas and don't want to blow the house up!)

has anyone here ever tried doing this before?

thanks! :)

Is it a wood burning fireplace or gas?
Our wood burning fp doors can open all the way for cleaning inside and out.
I know the glass on the gas fp can come out to be cleaned, but hasn't needed it yet.

This works great....period. Ceramabryte. Follow the directions and enjoy a sparkling and shiny glass door. My fireplace is only gas with the fake logs, embers, etc. and this works perfectly. Actually, I use this on loads of things around the house. Glass cooktop, bath fixtures both chrome and brass, sink fixtures and even the stopper in the bottom of the sink and tub/shower.

If you're able to remove the doors, use De-Solv-It, warm water and a microfiber cloth on them. That's what I always use and it seems to cut that haze wonderfully. You might try liquid Goo Gone instead (it's the same sort of cleaner).

A great benefit is that you're not breathing any toxic fumes from a cleaner!

Just open your Yellow Pages and look fireplaces, gas logs, gas grills , or patio furniture. These places sell all of the above as the seasons change as they would not be able to stay in business. They sell cleaner for your doors. I have used it for years and that is where I have always puchased it.
