    Go to Walmart & get a container of Ceramic Cooktop polish.
    It's a kind of a paste/rubbing compound product.
    It should work to clean the haze off the glass.
    Do the Mr. Myagi "wax on wax off" motion to apply it.
    Wipe it off with a soft towel.
    If you're gonna replace the glass, which I believe is Pyroceram,
    you're NOT gonna like the price.

    Don't know about the Bonami. Is that a scouring powder?
    If so it's too abrasive, & it'll damage the glass...

    Gas fireplaces can develop a white film over the top of the glass. I work on these units every day and prefer to use SW22 or Rutland makes a product for cleaning glass called white off

    I have had a lot of good luck with it

    Please try to avoid using standard household cleaners unless they are specifically designed for your gas fireplace. Also, a lot of people try and replace the glass with glass from a local glass shop. I highly discourage this as it may not be the tempered or ceramic glass you need.

    the glass is etched from so much heat im afraid. i was able to take a razor blade scraper and with the bonami clean it up pretty well. yes the glass is made by corning and is called pyroceram. i couldnt believe it was only 138.00 for a replacement i would not think tempered glass would hold up at all under the heat the stove puts out..

    i used to sell cornings china call pyroceram but it got so expensvie noone could afford it any longer. this is the same stuff that goes on the nose cone of space vehicles.
