Has the arrival of colder weather left you wondering how to clean log burner glass? Although it is best to clean the glass in a log burner shortly after it becomes sooty, it might only be now, when thoughts are turning to cosy nights in front of the fire, that you have decided to give the dirty glass some attention. 

Log burning stoves make a beautiful addition to all kinds of homes and are an effective way of heating up a room fast — plus they add bags of character and charm to spaces both old and new.
