    Unless you're getting black gunk (which should be addressed with better wood/burning practices)- a paper towel with water, followed by a dry one will get the glass as clean as any cleaner. If you have black gunk- burn hotter and it will burn off.

    Then there's no need to worry about the cleaner!

    Woodstoves use ceramic- it's much more tolerant to heat shock because of low expansion.

    Agree with everything but two points . . . I'm cheap . . . I use newspaper in place of the paper towel . . . that and I thought you were a staunch advocate of peeing on the glass AP. ;) :)

    50/50 water and urine- best thing there is, but nobody seems to listen. It's hard casting pearls before swine for this long Jake :)

    I wonder what they think conditioning means? How do you change the condition? Maybe our newspaper and ash conditions and I never knew it!
