Green Poplar to dissolve creosote?

by Kevin
(New Hampshire)

An "Old Wive's Tales" says that burning green poplar will help dissolve creosote. True or false?


Answer


That is indeed an old wives tale and holds no water. Creosote is the result of burning wet wood/inefficient fires and the only way to remove it is to have your chimney swept. One other product that can help is the Chimney Sweeping Log which may help remove creosote, but it's not a substitution for a proper cleaning.

Green poplar to dissolve creosote is a good topic for the discussion. You have done what a great job and have great research regarding creosote. You have good guideline of firewood. Every wood can not use for fire. So, we should get information about wood which can we use for fire or which can we use for other purpose. Actually, I really need a person who can write my college essay quickly and with quality work. Thanks a lot for it.
