Miss seeing my coal burn

PostBy: smith10210 On: Fri Jan 09, 2009 9:44 pm

Will there be a day where a new ceramic or something will come out that will not frost up.. My ceramic on my pioneer stayed cleaned for a few short months of cleaning it everyday but it was a loosing battle and a pain after awhile. You think with the technology today something new might come out.. I don't clean it anymore but it would be nice to see that lovely blue flame once again :) ..

I'm with you Smith. I like seeing flames - that's why we have glass door, no?

I've been using a product called Firebrand DryClean. It works pretty good. Since I've been using it, there is less ash "frosting" the window but still some chunks. I haven't cleaned the glass in a few days and can still seem flames albeit muted ones.

You'll get over it. I've come to enjoy the orange glow and the tiny bills from the oil man.

ya, kinda stinks. I've used just about everything in my basement and whatever else I can get my hands on. I'm now realizing its a lost cause.

Gonna try one last thing. I got some fabric wheels used for cleaning headlights that have hazed over. Gonna put the wheel and drill to it tomorrow.

Tried that...tried a flap wheel, compound, Rouge, sandpaper, brass wheel....it's part of the deal. Acid etches ceramic. Coal is acidic.
