    How to Protect the Glass From Sooting?

    • If you do not want to rummage through the hearth to get the ash from it, then choose a different substance for cleaning. Pour ordinary spirit vinegar into an atomizer bottle. If the glass is very sooty, then do not dilute it with water. If, on the other hand, the dirt is not heavy, then it is worth making a solution of vinegar with water. Later, spray it on the glass and quickly wipe it with a paper towel. The dirt will quickly come off.

    How to Protect the Glass From Sooting?

    Of course, you can significantly minimize the risk of strong sooting of the glass. To do this, definitely do not burn damp and wet wood in the fireplace. In addition, do not use wood from coniferous trees, as they pollute the flue and significantly weaken the air draft.

    Use only dried hardwood as fuel. Ideally, it should be seasoned for at least two years. In addition, regularly clean the entire fireplace and take care of its maintenance.
