If your drinking glasses are clear and transparent, after a few washes you quickly realise that it is nearly impossible to get rid of the cloudiness that gets left behind on the glasses. This cloudiness often forms from use of the dishwasher, hard-water build-up and other residue in your water supply that clouds the surface of the glasses, requiring you to implement some type of cleaning routine that keeps both guests and household members wanting to use the glasses.

Microwave bowls of white vinegar until the vinegar is warm to the touch but not boiling hot.

Pour the vinegar into a large basin, and microwave more vinegar as needed until you have enough warm vinegar to submerge all of the glasses.

Place the glasses in the basin and let them soak for 1 hour.

Remove the glasses and scrub with a nylon scrubber.

Rinse the glasses with warm water and dry with a dish towel.
