Whether your Pyrex dishes are of vintage origin or a modern variety, the Pyrex manufacturer created these dishes with a focus on easy maintenance. Because of the smooth surface of Pyrex dishes, they wash easily, allowing you to remove baked-on or cooked-on foods completely with minimal effort. While you must take care not to bump or drop the dishes because they can chip or break, these dishes clean easily for years of attractive kitchen service.

  1. 1

    Fill the sink with warm water and add two squirts of dishwashing detergent to the water. Mix the water and the soap around to create bubbles.

  2. 2

    Place the Pyrex dishes into the soapy water and allow them to soak for approximately five minutes.

  3. 3

    Wash the surfaces of the Pyrex dishes with the dishcloth after the soaking time elapses. Use the sudsy dishcloth to loosen and remove all food residues from the surface of the dishes.

  4. 4

    Scrub lightly on the Pyrex dishes with the nylon scouring pad if stubborn food remains on the surfaces. Do not scrub so hard that you damage the surface or create scratches.

  5. 5

    Rinse the Pyrex dishes in warm water to remove all soap. Dry the Pyrex dishes with a dishtowel.

Tips and warnings

  • Place newer Pyrex dishes into the dishwasher for cleaning, if desired. Load the dishes securely so they will not bump into other dishes during the washing process. Avoid washing vintage Pyrex dishes in the dishwasher because the combination of hot water and strong detergent may damage painted Pyrex surfaces.
