Clean your gallon glass jugs with soapy water.

Glass gallon jugs have been used traditionally to hold beverages and other liquids. While the jugs provide a solid surface for storage, they can be bulky and difficult to clean. To keep the jugs looking their best, clean them properly in a way that removes all residue and keeps the jugs in usable condition.


Step 1

Fill the kitchen sink with about halfway with warm water.

Step 2

Add in 1 cup white vinegar and a squirt of dish soap per gallon of water. The vinegar deodorizes, disinfects and removes water spots and hazy residue. The dish soap cuts through food residue and boosts cleaning power.

Step 3

Place the jug into the water and let soak for a few minutes, rotating every minute or so to get a thorough cleaning on all sides.

Step 4

Scrub the glass jug with a clean rag. Use a bottle brush if the bottle has a small lip that is difficult to clean.

Step 5

Rinse the jug with warm water and dry with a clean rag.
