Plastic glasses are used in many kitchens, as they are inexpensive, easy to clean and nearly impossible to break. Clean plastic glasses the same way you do the rest of your dishes, but take one additional factor into consideration. Water spots commonly deposit on plastic surfaces, which leave the plastic glasses looking dirty if these spots are not handled properly.

  1. 1

    Fill your sink with hot water, using enough to submerge all of your plastic glasses.

  2. 2

    Pour 1 squirt of dish soap and 2 tbsp. white vinegar into the water for every gallon of water used.

  3. 3

    Submerge all of the glasses in the soapy water. The vinegar will break up any water spots, plus prevent new spots from developing. Let soak for five minutes.

  4. 4

    Scrub the plastic glasses with a dish cloth.

  5. 5

    Drain the sink, and rinse all of the glasses with hot water.

  6. 6

    Hand dry the plastic glasses with a dish towel to prevent new water spots from developing on your freshly cleaned glasses.
