How Do you Clean Cloudy Glass Dishes?


Your older glass dishes may develop a cloudy film that almost makes them look dirty and unusable. To remove this cloudiness and restore the glass to its natural, intended crystal-clear appearance, use a strong cleaner that removes all of that unattractive cloudy residue. This can be done with one inexpensive ingredient.

Things You'll Need

  • Vinegar
  • Basin
  • Microwave-safe bowl
  • Water
  • Sponge
  • Dish towel
  • Microwave enough vinegar to submerge the glass dishes. Check the vinegar after about one minute of microwaving, and pour the vinegar into a large basin when the vinegar is hot, but still able to be touched.

  • Place the glassware into the basin, and let soak for one hour.

  • Scrub the dishes with a nylon sponge with scrubber to remove the loosened residue.

  • Rinse the dishes under hot water to remove the vinegar.

  • Dry the dishes with a clean dish towel to prevent new film from forming.
