    Default Fireplace smoke on glass

    WCRA Free Membership
    I have a lady I met that just moved into a new house and has heavy smoke film on some fireplace glass, what would you use to remove this smoke? This is going to be a great repeat client and would really like to get this glass clean for her. Thanks

    Easy home made trick that you probably don't want the customer to know is wet news paper and fire ashes. It will get the window perfectly clean. If for some reason it doesn't work you razor blade will.

    I would be careful with the blade on the glass.

    I always used a foam cleaner, worked great. If not I would maybe try some bioclean or similar stain remover.

    After all, a stain is a stain, whether it be hard water or smoke.

    Oh yea, use a good polish (once again Bioclean) on the metal handles. Clean up the trim, really spend a little time on it. Your efforts will not go unnoticed!
