Try AGA enamel cleaner. No gritty stuff and it can be used while surface is hot.

About £8 a tube but lasts ages.

Off topic but why 128plant? I know 128 is like the best number ever, but why?

Try "REVIVE POWER PASTE" The stuff is ******* amazing! Non-Toxic, Oderless and can be used for allsorts of cleaning.
I bought it off one of those guys that do the demo's at the market rather dubiously, but have to admit it is AWESOME!

Just checked their site and it's "under construction"
but if you google it you'll get sellers of this stuff

It Took **** off a glass oven door that hadn't been cleaned for 5+ years!

hi we have a 2 multi fuel stove and we clean the glass with hot water and sponge just one you would do the pots with and a bit of kitchen roll to dye it it looks as good as new

I use Astonish Grime Blast, a product intended for cleaning ceramic and halogen hobs.
If the glass gets very heavily sooted, you can use a very fine grade of wire wool to shift it.

I have used a brillo pad for years, it takes all the grime off easily.

mind you vinegar worked well too when i lit the fire the soot rolled off.

Orange (citrus) based cleaners seem to work well when soaking the sooty build up, it works into a paste which can be eased off with a wodge of kitchen paper towel...

vinegar is also another old school favourite, well proven.
Bar keepers friend seems to get a few thumbs up too..
old thread but it is woodburning season.
The other relative point is size your multi-fuel stove / fire to the room & heating requirements, then fire it hard! ..this assists the airwash function (if fitted) resulting in cleaner glass for longer.
Sreasoned logs ? split & properly dried wood is obviously a route to cleaner glass too.. try drying logs in unused greenhouses / hot conservatories over summer months, it seems to speed the drying process very well, the more split sides a log has, the faster the moisture release & therefore lower moisture content & better calorific content of the wood for burning purposes..
A good Moisture meter such as the ST-129 offers you 150(ish ) species calibrations & a temp probe as well, which compensates further saving you doing the math required of other basic models of similar price points..
For example when looking for a moisture meter for my log fuel pile, I saw a £10 model seemingly rebadged with the "morso" logo for around 3x the price! ..this led me admittedly to get an expensive (£45) unit but with far more scope & hopefully longevity.
They all SEEM to operate on electrical resistance by sticking electrode pins into the wood needing testing, ..so are all of a similar ilk, however with different species therefore densities of fibre etc you generally have to do math in your head, & even more again based on temp of the wood, so an all singing unit often works out better in the long run unless you have enough space & money to rotate large log piles into fresh, seasoning & several years old..
I haven't which is why I try to take some of the guesswork out of the scenario & maintain cleaner glass.

I just cleaned my fireglass for the first time since late september (09), now in late jan 2010 after being lit for around 16 hrs per day, It took all of 30 seconds to clean off completely, used 151 (cost £1) "ELBOW GREASE" lemon cleaner & some paper towel... immaculate.
just cleaned the oven glass too (18 months of build up & several ducks later) same product & a new paint scraper... took around 5 mins , no effort.
the elbow grease product is also fabulous on pvc window frames.

Best way to clean glass is wipe over with piece of damp paper towel dipped in the ash from the pan and wipe with dry piece of towel costs nothing and works every time
