    I have been using crumpled up news paper to clean the hot glass on my Accentra insert. I guess I am lucky. I only clean the glass once per week. The glass stays quite clean with only a slight graying in the upper right corner. I read that some of you are cleaning daily: try the news paper trick.

    I'm the lucky one, been running my used P61 for about 3 weeks and the glass is absolutely clean.

    Thanks for the suggestion. My glass has never been cleaner, I guess I'll renew my subscription to the daily rag.

    If you Pellet folks stop by the woodburner's section you'll see that a lot of new folks using woodstoves have problems with dirty glass . . . I think most woodburning veterans rely on newspaper . . . they wet it down a bit, dip it in the ashes, rub it on the glass and voila . . . the glass comes clean very easily . . . although afterwards you need to get another wet piece of newspaper to clean up the glass to make it crystal clear.

    Great idea! I used to use newspaper to clean my windows in an old historic townhouse I lived in years ago. I've been using my (dry) microfiber cloth for the pellet stove glass, and it works so nice; but newspaper will work even better, I think.
    Thanks!

    This works wonderfully. Found an old LL Bean catalogue, tore out the page, crumpled it up, opened my hot stove and rubbed the glass miraculously clean. No cooling needed. Awesome.
