You may have seen them spelled as Chiminea and Chimenea but have you ever wondered which is right chiminea or chimenea?
To clean rust from your cast iron chiminea simply take a wire brush and give it a really good scrub to remove excess rust, then use some sandpaper to finish off before applying a coat of suitable stove or BBQ paint.
A chiminea is a great thing to have in your garden or outside space offering heat on colder evenings and providing a real focal point, but do you keep the chiminea lid on or off whilst it’s burning?
Having recently read an article about a man who suffered severe burns when he tried and light his chiminea with petrol, we decided to write this article. We hope having read this you will have a better idea of how to light a chiminea safely each and every time.
