For those who own log burners, these typically tend to be a focal point of the room, as people comment on their beauty, and they love the warmth they generate.
However, when brownish-black stains start to form on the glass, it can be unsightly.
With the UK heading into the coldest time of the year, cleaning expert Ronnie Kendrick of CompanyClean has shared with Express.co.uk how log burner glass should be cleaned without causing scratches or damage to the glass.
The expert claimed that the combination of dish soap white vinegar, and water is a “highly effective and safe way” to clean log burner glass.
He noted that there are a few reasons why he stands by this method.
Ronnie recommends using a good quality dish soap as this will act as a “powerful degreaser”.
Log burners often produce soot and greasy residue that can stick to the glass.
The dish soap will help to “break down and lift away these stubborn stains without damaging the glass surface”.
When white vinegar is combined with dish soap, it makes this method “work wonders”, according to the expert.

Ronnie explained: “White vinegar, on the other hand, is a natural acid that works wonders on mineral deposits and hard water stains.
“It's excellent at dissolving the mineral buildup that can accumulate on log burner glass over time.”
When mixing these two cleaning agents with water, households get a balanced solution that's “gentle enough not to scratch the glass” but “strong enough to tackle even the toughest burnt-on stains”.
What’s more, this method is an “affordable and readily available option” for most homeowners.
The process is straightforward. Start by applying the mixture, let it sit for a few minutes to loosen the stains, gently scrub with a soft cloth, and rinse it off.
If needed, households can use a scraper or razor blade at a shallow angle to tackle particularly stubborn spots.
However, for those who choose to do so, be extremely careful not to scratch the glass.
