I tried it aswell, it does work some but I had better luck just buying the Soot Remover from Tractor Supply. Another thing I didn't like about the aluminum cans is that it left a white haze all over the Inside of the furnace. But when I put cans in there with a good hot fire going they disappeared.

Old timers did and do their thing.

I find most young people don’t listen to the old timers and when they do they only listen half way. If that describes you…

…then please…only burn well seasoned wood in your stove that has been cut, split, and stacked up off the ground on skids, and only top covered so moisture in the wood can escape. These stacks of wood should be there minimum 2 years, preferably 3 before you burn them.

Do that and burn a hot fire 15 minutes each day and you shouldn’t have any creosote problems…and if you do…buy some Cre-Away.

The rest of you…listen well to the old timers.
