How to clean cloudy glasses

Have you noticed a cloudy look to your water glasses? As time goes on, calcium, because of its natural density and hardness as a mineral, can actually etch and embed itself into the glass giving your glasses a spotty or cloudy look. Mickey from Katie, Texas was experiencing this problem and wanted to return her glassware to its original luster. “How do I get my clear drinking glasses to sparkle?”

Mickey, as I said, that cloudiness that you see on your glasses is calcium buildup. We recommend using a 50/50 solution of CLR® Calcium, Lime & Rust Remover and warm water in a glass or porcelain bowl to clean your glasses. Apply the solution to the stained areas on the glasses using a damp cloth or sponge. After two minutes, rinse thoroughly with cold, clean water.

If it seems that CLR helped a bit, but the glasses are not completely clear, repeat with full strength CLR. CLR contains no inorganic phosphates, hazardous solvents or environmentally harmful surfactants. Instead, CLR contains a blend of ingredients which are better for your health and that of the environment than conventional cleaning formulas.
