Review of Charnwood C 5 stove

Cleaning the window

Cyril Bonnett 4 years ago

Depending on how we use our C5 we do get the glass sooting up, we tried various ideas to clean it but by far the best and easiest is purchasing a propriety glass cleaning product, using a small piece of a green scourer it takes just a couple of minutes to get a spotlessly clean glass.

Stove expert replied: Do take care that the green scourer does not scratch the service of the glass, the non stock option is better as it is less abrasive. A damp cloth dipped in woodash should do the trick and making sure you use dry seasoned wood (moisture content of less than 20%) and allowing plenty of air into the firebox should mean that the glass stays clean.
