Chimney sweep by burning log


Just purchased the Creosote Sweeping Log. You burn it like another log and suppose to release minerals to loosen creosote in the chimney. Do those things really work and how effective is it?

Does it burn? Sure, but you can save time by just tossing dollar bills into the fire.

I seem remember a Consumer Magazine Report or something, some ten to fifteen years ago, that said they are useless?

Well, I know they sell tablets that you put in your car's gas tank and they do a ring job, so this shortcut must work too!

They might make some tiny difference. However, if your chimney is crusty with creosote it needs to be cleaned. Do not use the "chimney fire" technique, by the way!
