I have some drinking glasses that have gotten hard water spots on them from putting them in the dishwasher. Does anyone know how to get them off?

I always thought that once the hard water film was there that nothing could be done - I threw the glasses away.

I found this on Yahoo Answers. Maybe it can help - let me know if it works. I have one Pyrex dish I'd like to use it on.

I have changed my dishwashing detergent to Finish Quantum. It has cleaned all the hard water spots off everything and all is sparkling clean and shiny again. It is by far the best!!

GA I also use Finish Quantum and agree it is the best.

The glasses I'm trying to get the spots off of came from my aunt. Maybe if I run them through the dishwasher a few times with Finish Quantum, it will clean them up. For now I have them soaking in vinegar and water. I called Replacements.com and they said vinegar would not hurt them.

Oma, If I ever get this off here I will let you know what product did the trick.

try soaking them in a pan or bowl with false teeth cleaner....just follow the directions for cleaning false teeth. i did this with old glass bottles when i was collecting and selling. it did a great job on them.

Grandma, Thanks! I will try that.

They are still soaking in the vinegar. I'm gonna check them after the ice skating.

change your rinse aid. ALways use jetdry NOT the cheap ole stuff. Using dawn dish soap on them is one of the best ways. Also use cascade. Clean your dishwasher with the a 1/4 cup of oxy clean and bleach.

I'm getting ready to check and see if the false teeth cleaner worked.

I have some oxy clean and will try that next.
