    WARNING: Cancer and Reproductive Harm - For more information go to

    Wood burning fireplaces and stoves produce creosote that builds up in your chimney. Creosote remover can help because if creosote is left untreated, it can constrict the chimney passageway causing smoke buildup to enter into the room or even a fire to start in the chimney. Fortunately, there is an easy solution to preventing this problem. Merely putting a scoop of this creosote removal powder from Rutland into your fire will change the creosote into a powder that you can quickly brush away. By regularly using this creosote remover, you can reduce this problem and also help your fires burn more cleanly and efficiently.

    Is this product safe for stainless steel chimney liners connected to fireplace insert? What type of chimney brush should be used to clean out residue after using?
    1 Answer
    This would be safe to use with a chimney liner for your insert, and I would suggest using a nylon brush to clear out residue after.

    Hello, so would it make more sense to use it for a few days then clean the chimney & then use it to maintain? Seems to me if I use it 2 times a week without cleaning it (if there is buildup) that might pose a problem thanks.
    1 Answer
    I would say that would be a good route to go on keeping the chimney clean using this.

    from RI asked:
    February 19, 2016
    Will this product cause any interior damage to the mason flues, and will it cause any external damage to the chimney? Will it cause the exterior cement and paint on the chimney to crack with a hot fire inside in very cold weather outside? Is it bad to have this product in the stove upon lighting the wood stove while the fire is very hot ?
    1 Answer
    This product will not cause any collateral damage to the clay flue or surrounding masonry when used in the proper amounts. The product is designed to be applied to a well established fire and will simply dry creosote deposits within the flue through a gradual chemical reaction. The active ingredient has no effect on clay or brick.

    How many applications will this 2 lb tub do, and how often should it be used?
    1 Answer
    Per the manufacturer, you should initially use this product twice a week for the first month, then once weekly is acceptable. Used at these intervals, the product should last for approximately 7 months.

    Can this also be safely used in pellet stoves?
    1 Answer
    While this product can be safely used in a pellet stove, it will not be as effective. The air volume traveling through a pellet vent is much less than on a sealed combustion wood burning unit and will prevent the product from circulating as well.
