Drinking glasses are some of the most frequently used items from your kitchens cupboard, right next to the plates and utensils. It is not the most pleasant chore to clean one single glass, but it is better to clean one now instead of having to deal with a whole pile afterwards. A sink full of glasses is a terribly ugly sight to see but there are many ways to deal with this problem. Here are some of the most effective ones.
- Plug your sink and fill it with hot water. Place the glasses in the water and pour dish washing detergent, preferably a lime one, because those work great on glasses. Let the glasses soak in the bubbly water for at least 30 minutes. After the glasses have soaked it is time to wash them, use a plastic scrub and a sponge to clean. Rinse good, one by one and let them dry before you polish them.
- Vinegar is another great item which you may use for cleaning drinking glasses. There are several ways to use vinegar as a glass cleaner but the most effective one is to combine some with hot water and let the glasses sit in the solution for a while. The acid stored in vinegar is great for removing spots and stains on glass materials so it will be really easy to scrape off the dirt from your drinking glasses, using a plastic scrub or just washcloth.
- Adding 2-3 tablespoons baking soda to the water in which your glasses are soaking is another great tip. After 30 minutes take out the glasses one by one and treat them with glass washing detergent and make sure to rinse them good.
- Before polishing the glasses, make sure that they are all clean and dry.
Always rub the glasses with a soft and dry cotton cloth. Using a rougher fabric may cause scratches to the glass surface and you will surely regret that.
