Sipping a cool drink from a sparkling clean glass is one of life's little comforts. It doesn't last long, however, when your glasses are covered with a dull white film, making them look dull and dirty. But instead of hiding them in the back of a cabinet, we'll show you how to wash opaque glassware using the best methods and products for the best results. Get ready to bring back that shine!
The most likely causes of foggy glassware is hard water, which damages your glassware in two ways: First, the minerals in hard water can leave a foggy residue. Second, hard water is less effective than soft water at rinsing out dishwasher detergent and dirty water, which also results in a milky film. Another culprit? There may be an etching problem that, unfortunately, could not be fixed. Etching can be prevented from several causes - excessively hot water, too soft water, using too much detergent, or washing the dishes too much before putting them in the dishwasher - so try using less (or milder) detergent by reducing pre-wash and check the temperature of the dishwasher.
1. rinse the glassware
Run the glass under the tap with warm water, being careful not to heat it too much, otherwise the glass may crack.
Add some mild washing-up liquid to the washing-up bowl, Avoid using harsh detergents such as bleach or scented detergents, as these can be abrasive and cause damage to glass or remain on the surface.
3. rub the glassware
Using a sponge dipped in soapy water, turn the glass against the sponge. It is advisable to use a sponge with a handle to avoid excessive direct pressure of the hand on the glass during cleaning.
Mix two tablespoons of white vinegar with one glass of water and use a spray bottle or paper towel to apply the solution to the glass. The acid in the vinegar will break down any cloudiness. This will also give the glass a shinier look.
5.Rinse the glassware
Rinse off the vinegar with warm water.
6. dry the glassware
Use a microfiber cloth or kitchen roll to dry immediately.
If you have soft water and still want to use your dishwasher to clean your glassware, you can prevent ruining them by making sure that glasses are dishwasher-safe when you buy. When you run the machine, open the door to allow steam to escape once the cycle has finished, and let your glassware cool before removing them.
