    What is everyone using to clean the insides of the door glass on their stoves? I am using CERAMA BRYTE ceramic cooktop cleaner and applying it with a dry paper towel, it cleans up quick and easy with no watery mess dripping all over.
    Quad says use a damp paper towel or any nonabrasive glass cleaner.
    Use a hard water deposit glass cleaner on white film cleaner.

    Imperial glass cleaner and conditioner. Says non-abrasive cream that
    cleans, conditions,seals and protects. Works great!

    I think I'm going try the Magic Eraser.

    I've used Windex, Imperial, and Stoner Glass Cleaner in the past. My only concern is whether these product (most of which contain ammonia) can shorten the life of the door gasket? I realize we're talking about small amounts of cleaner ending up on the door gasket, but I clean my glass just about every other day. That adds up quickly. Just something that crossed my mind.

    Most of the time I use a wet paper towel and dry it off. Haven't been getting creosote deposits on the glass with the TriStates. Just some white ash film.

    Spray cleaner on paper towel lightly
    then wipe glass and nothing
    will get on the gasket. I've used
    the mr clean eraser in a pinch and it does work.

    Towel, cloth, or paper towel slightly dampened stick part of it in the ash and use that to remove the crud on the glass then a dampened towel etc... to clean off what is left.

    No cleaning liquids other than water are needed.

    Yup, I was using Windex till I read a post here about using plain water and a little bit of ash. Works great!

    Slightly dampened paper towel with a little multi-surface Windex sprayed onto the damp paper towel, cleans up like a champ.

    I've always used black and white print newspaper and a diluted white vinegar cleaning spray. Always worked with our DutchWest Stoves and other cleaning needs.

    Nothing fancy, but it's really cheap, friendly, and effective.

    A wet paper towel, followed by a dry paper towel to polish it up. The windows are not glass, they are made from ceramic material. Most times water will clean them just fine. The only reside I ever see is a very light brown ash on my window I never get anything that doesnt wipe right off with plain water.

    I was told not to put windex on it as it can get on your door gasket, and this can deteriorate the door gasket, however , this is only what the installer told me. It may or may not be correct.

    Pretty good success with using a water soaked sponge and wiping the glass when the stove is running.

    2 paper towels folded into a 8X8 square wetted with warm water ..let the ash on the door glass be its own abrasive and scrub it clean, dry paper towel to buff it clean.

    Make sure it's rated for pellet stoves chemicals left behind will etch the glass over time exposed to the heat.

    I use Comfees baby wipes. If it's good enough for a baby's ash, it's good enough for glass ash.

    I'm with Smokey on this one. Fairly early into it, but so far been using just ash, and a damp cloth/paper towel. It's been doing a great job so far. It actually mentions it in the manufactures manual.

    just a dry rag cleans all the stoves here and at the house. Must be the fuel cause there are numerous brands of stoves running.
