View Full Version : Haze on wine glasses?
12-22-2011, 11:01 AM
Some of our Reidel wine glasses have a haze that isn't coming off easily. They haven't been washed in a dishwasher, and I generally use very little if any detergent to avoid any fragrance or residue remaining that would impact the flavor and aroma of the wine. Any ideas on the best way to remove the haze? I'm thinking vinegar...would that work? I hate to do anything that might damage the glasses.

It is probably a film from your detergent or water and should come off with a good soak/rinse in vinegar.
When I wash crystal I do it in once sink with a little Dawn then rinse in a part vinegar/part water rinse. Helps with no spots.
I'd rinse yours in vinegar then wash and dry as usual. If it is still there I'd do it with distilled water and vinegar. If that takes care of it you know it is your water.

I'm glad someone gave you some advice because I was going to suggest adding wine to the glass, drink, repeat. That is my sure fire way to get rid of the haze.

Vinegar did the trick for our Boda wine glasses and I wasn't even diluting it. Better be careful first to see what your glasses can handle. Our nice glasses are now being hand washed then towel-dried immediately.

Our glasses get a haze also, but I need to use CLR. vinegar doesn't touch it. it's a mineral deposit from our water.

Personally, I prefer sunnyshine's method... :)
If nothing else works, soak for several hours in a mixture of warm water and powdered Oxy Clean Free.
