Simple, no cost. Take damp newspaper and dip in cold wood ashes. Rub on glass until creosote and film comes off. Repeat as needed; finish with window cleaner. Works better than any thing I buy.

I just tried cleaning my glass doors with newspaper in cold water and I used the wood ashes with it. The build up came right off. That was a great idea!

I just tried using the ashes to clean my doors and am amazed. The build up comes right off. Easier and faster than using a razor blade, which I tried 2 years ago, last time I attempted to clean.

I just found the answer ! I used a sponge with a rough side for washing dishes. Dampened the rough side and dipped it in the ashes. It worked great. Have to scrub a little though
