Cleaning MES Window Without Any Chemicals I've been cleaning my MES window with various things over the last year. I used Windex, with the door all the way open, so the overspray wouldn't get inside my MES 40. Guys told me this could leave a toxic residue anyway. Even though I buff it real good & dry, and I don't believe it unsafe, I tried other things, like Alcohol. Alcohol worked good, but not when the coating was real thick. It got all gummed up. So the other suggestion was the best I could come up with----Razor blade, and then Alcohol. That works pretty good !!!! Then I woke up!!! What am I doing???? I've been cleaning the inside of my glass door on my wood stoves for 30 years, and it works great & easy & quick!!! No chemicals at all are used. But would it work on my MES 40 glass window in the door??? I finally got around to testing it, and it works great !!!!! All it takes is about 4 or 5 wet paper towels, One dry paper towel, and ashes from a wood stove. The ashes are easy to come by for those of us in the North, with woodstoves & fireplaces. And I guess guys in warmer climate could just burn some wood in a bucket or on the ground, and save some ashes (it doesn't take much) in a container, after it cools. See below for some pics & directions: Bear Stop eyeing up my eggs---They're a few weeks old!!!! My flash didn't go off on my first picture, so I substituted this old one. The ashes inside, on the floor of the woodstove are what you want: This flash didn't go off either, but what you want to do is get about 6 paper towels. Take two of them, and ball them up & run water on them to get them a little less than dripping wet. Then open your stove door, and dab one side of those two balled wet towels into the ashes. Also individually ball 3 other paper towels, and get them less than dripping wet. Keep the other paper towel dry. Sorry it's hard to see below, but that is the wet paper towels with ashes on the one side. Now meet me outside, at the smoker!!!!! Here is a shot of the inside of my MES 40 Door. All you do is put the wet paper towels with the ashes on, against the glass & scrub it just like you would scrub any window, until the whole thing is smeared up, like the next picture below. Here it is all smeared up, but the dirt is no longer stuck to the glass, just like it gets with any kind of cleaner. Then using the other wet paper towels one at a time, keep wiping the glass. It will get cleaner with each wet paper towel. How many wet paper towels it takes will depend on how dirty it was to begin with. Then when it looks clean enough to you, buff it with the dry paper towel-----Done ! Here it is with the door closed. There are a couple light streaks, meaning I should have used one more wet towel---I only used 2, after the ashes. Those light colored dots are on the back wall of my smoker, just like the light circle around my heat sensor. Also, if your glass is a lot dirtier than mine was, you could still use the razor blade first---Then this method. For those of you who never tried this on the inside of your woodstove door glass---You really Must Try It !!!! It works Awesome !!!!
