Nothing is more frustrating than those sticky white residue stains on your glassware. Vinegar is a non-toxic, all-purpose cleaner that can bring back the sparkle to your glasses and even your vases, decorative jars and keepsake wine bottles. Maintain your glassware by cleaning it with vinegar about once a month or whenever residue builds up. Always use white vinegar, as opposed to brown vinegars, when you are cleaning.
Things You'll Need
- White vinegar
- Paper towels
- Cloth towel
Fill your sink with full-strength, undiluted white vinegar.
Place your glasses in the vinegar. Soak the glassware for a couple of hours.
Wipe the glasses clean using a paper towel. Rub gently.
Rinse the glasses well under warm water.
Place glasses on a clean kitchen towel and let them air-dry.
