How to clean the glass woodstove door

lopi woodstoveA couple of years ago, I replaced my wood-stove when a big crack developed in it.   The new one (Lopi 1250) is much more efficient and has a glass door on it.

I think the glass door is supposed to be self-cleaning and some of the soot does burn off  with a hot fire, but I still prefer to clean it because it looks better and it doesn’t take long at all.
