A couple of months ago P got a double glazed wood burner (wonderful view of the fire!) and cleans the glass with a damp ecloth, or water with a bit of washing up liquid. Hob cleaner? Not old country methods but they work.
I didn't know ashes worked, Josie!

We visited the future mother-in-law at the weekend and I think she was using damp newspaper to clean the glass. I wasn't really paying that much attention but it was definitely newspaper.

most cleaning agents will clean the glass on your fire especialy de greasing agents )wash up washing powder oven cleaner )and make a good job of it ,useing ash or newspaper will also do the job but it is an abbrasive so will scratch the glass ,you wont notice this for a long time but it does cause the soot and tar to collect faster the more you scratch it ,the best way is to soften it with deterjent in a spray bottle ,then wipe it off once soft with a bit of kitchen roll or simmilar ,
i personaly use Elbow Grease (its a cheep cleaner from pound shops )and its GREAT ,if you see it try it (i have deegreased diesel engins with this stuff)comes in a spray bottle and shifts anything MOS
sit down with a cupa and the urge will subside
E-How to the rescue!
They pretty much said the same thing as everyone else, wet newspaper, cold ash, etc.
But I thought hint 4 was interesting. I had never heard that before.
If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!
See link here, for a product called Elbow Grease.
I'll try that again!
I use the stuff for cleaning stainless steel hobs etc on a damp cloth and then kitchen roll to finish...seems to lift if quickly and effectively...
