When you throw a dinner party or similar event, you often run a batch of your glassware through the dishwasher to provide a quick cleaning a disinfecting without requiring you to hand wash the pieces one by one. While the dishwasher is effective in completing these tasks, you sometimes are left with water spots that lead to hard-to-remove stains after the water spots have dried. Luckily, common household items can get rid of these stains quickly.

Remove the glasses from the dishwasher. Dry each glass with a cleaning rag to remove the water droplets before they dry.

Drizzle white vinegar over the edge of the cloth and scrub over the glassware. Continue until all dishwasher stains are removed from the glassware.

Rinse the glassware with warm water to get the leftover vinegar off the glassware.

Dry each glass with a clean cloth to prevent new spots from forming.
