How to revive cloudy glasses from the dishwasher

Are you tired of your glasses coming out of the dishwasher with a cloudy, white layer on the surface after they’ve been washed? We get it. Here are some tips on how to clean them up properly and make them shine again.

Who hasn’t gone to empty their dishwasherand found that, over the years, their glasses have become cloudy? This is completely normal and it is actually due to limescale build up.

When they are machine washed, glasses tends to become cloudy and form a fine white layer on the surface of the glass. But is there an easy way to get rid of this layer?

How to remove this white layer

To make your glasses shine again, we suggest using a rather miraculous, yet completely natural product: white vinegar.

Soak your cloudy glasses for 10-15 minutes in a container filled with white vinegar. Then rinse them with hot water and wipe them with a clean cloth. As you will see, the results are amazing!

How to make sure your glasses always shine

However, to avoid needing to do this, we advise pouring a glass of white vinegar into the rinse aid compartment of your dishwasher every time you run the machine.

When used alongside your normal cleaning products and lozenges, white vinegar will prevent the limescale from forming that white, cloudy layer on your glasses.

The benefits of adding white vinegar to the dishwasher

You may not know it, but pouring white vinegar into the bottom of your dishwasher and running a normal cycle will also help clean the appliance and keep it running smoothly. How? Because the white vinegar will remove any limescale that is currently clogging up the dishwasher’s pipes.

For ultra-efficient cleaning, you could also add a few teaspoons of baking soda to your dishwasher alongside the glass of white vinegar. Set the machine running and voilà! As you will see, it is incredibly effective.
