Common methods of cleaning fire viewing panels can be dirty and spread dirt in the close surrounding of the fireplace. The SCHOTT ROBAX® Dry Wiper is the industry’s leading solution for cleaning fire viewing panels without affecting the cleanliness of the area around the fireplace. Now, these remarkable dry erase wipers will be sold in a new, eco-friendly packaging that also offers a better view of the product.
