Fold or collapse your newspaper, dip it in the water and after that in the ash. You simply require to dampen the newspaper a little bit (simply damp) and also you simply need a little ash to stay with the damp newspaper.

Take your dampened newspaper with ash and also begin carefully massaging the product on the inside of your fireplace glass. I prefer a circular activity as I locate it loosens up the residue quicker. You will certainly discover as you clean, your paper will turn black and become filthy. Discard that piece of paper as well as get some extra, dip it in the water then ash, as well as repeat as needed. In short order, you will have gotten rid of the majority of the 'baked on' soot, and also you'll have just a bit left on your glass.

Splash a few of the water on the glass as well as wipe off with a paper towel. Repeat up until the paper towels have no black deposit, then dry with a tidy paper towel.

Take a look at the clear new glass! You deserve a good glass of a glass of wine by the fire!
