I had heard that vinegar was a good way to remove spots and cloudiness from your glassware, but what I didn’t know until recently was that you can add it right into your dishwasher each cycle. I was at my parent’s house one day and my mom had been doing this for a little while, and all their glassware had lost any cloudiness and spots.
I tried it myself, and it worked on our glasses too. And bonus? If you have a stainless steel dishwasher, it keeps the inside looking brand new. Ours had started getting a whitish residue, and that is mostly all gone now. This goes for any dishwasher, but it also keeps it smelling fresh. Ours had started to get a little musty smelling, and adding vinegar each cycle cleared that right up.
What to do:
Buy a BIG container of vinegar, and then each time you run a cycle, just pour what looks like about a cup into the bottom. You’ll still want to use dishwasher detergent (I use Cascade Complete). You don’t have to mess with putting it in the rinse aid slot, or any slot, just pour it right in the dishwasher and start it up. If your glasses are really cloudy, it may take a few cycles to get them completely clear.
Cheers to sparkling glassware!
