Quick Tip of the Week
Posted Jan 12, 2008
Hard water can be rough on your skin, your taps, and your clothes, but did you know that your drinking glasses could also be affected? Hard water is water that contains large amounts of minerals, such as calcium and magnesium. While this doesn’t make the water any less drinkable, it can leave mineral build-up on taps and turn your drinking glasses cloudy. Scrubbing your glasses with baking soda toothpaste should remove most cloudy elements from your glasses. For deeper stains, try soaking your glassware in warm vinegar for an hour before scrubbing. If you own a dishwasher, you can put vinegar directly into the machine to help soften the water as your dishes clean.
