If you are hosting a dinner party or simply just grabbing a glass of water there is nothing worse than dingy-looking glasses.
There is a way to clean up cloudy glasses and limit how often the unwanted haze returns and you can do using staples you most likely already have in your kitchen cupboards.

How to Clean Cloudy Glasses
Cloudiness in glassware is usually caused by two things: Calcium and magnesium left behind from hard water. Washing them by hand is the best way to keep them clean and spot-free, but with busy lives the dishwasher makes light work of washing up.
Soak in white vinegar
You need the white vinegar to be warm before using it as an effective cleaning agent. Fill your sink with hot water and let your bottle of white vinegar soak for one minute. Next, drain the sink and refill it with the now warm vinegar. Just use enough to cover the glasses and then let the glasses soak for one hour.
Remove the Film
Take the glasses out of their vinegar, gently scrub with your sponge and rinse with hot water until they are crystal clear.
Dry the Glasses
Prevent the Cloudiness From Returning
Since glassware becomes cloudy from dried water droplets, is to prevent water from drying on them in the first place which mainly happens when using the dishwasher. Hand washing and drying immediately is the best solution and will help keep your glasses from getting cloudy.
Cloudiness Could Be Permanent
If you have tried the above and your glasses are still cloudy after they dry, the condition is likely permanent.
Angle the glass toward the light, if you see shades of pink, purple, brown, or blue this is a sign that your glasses can’t be brought back to life.
