Cast Iron vs Soap Stone Wood Stoves
December 07, 2011 at 1:41 PM
Soapstone Stoves provide heat long after the fire in the firebox goes out. Certainly a cast iron stove will radiate heat longer than a steel stove after the fire goes out, but soap stone stoves go even beyond. Stoves with soapstone on their cast exterior will be a very attractive addition to any room in the home. They're available by manufacturers in wood, gas , and even pellet. Consult with a hearth professional to determine the difference and your needs. A reputable dealer should offer differnt lines of stoves and be able to show the best application for one's needs.

I've used baking soda and a nylon scrub pad on mine for years. Soft Scrub works, too and so does Dawn Power Dissolver for relaly burnt areas. Refrain from the temptation to use a blade or edge of any sort because it will leave a scratch that will attract more gunk. Keep up the conditioner like you have been it keeps stuff from pitting the surface.
