Proper cleaning of glasses

Do you notice something strange about your glass pieces? If they're blurry even after washing then you might be living in a hard-water area! Hard water has a high mineral count, and the calcium deposits often leave marks or calcium build-up wherever water is used.

In particular, frequent dishwashing using hard water could cause glassware and plasticware, such as drinking glasses and your baby's feeding bottles, to be blurry. To prevent this, you may clean your items using white vinegar! Click here for the complete instructions.
