Just when we thought the glasses were a lost cause (and even purchased new ones!), we hopped online and read a household tip that vinegar might do the trick. So, we decided to give it a shot!
We bought white wine vinegar at the grocery store for $3 (but we're sure you could use regular vinegar), and grabbed our worst filmy glass for the test run.
Of course, now that our glasses are back to their like-new status, we'll be careful to take precautions to avoid this mishap in the future. A little research revealed that there are several ways that this problem can occur: not using a drying aid in the dishwasher, using too much detergent, having hard water, the water temperature is too hot/cold for the dishwasher cycle, and many others. We figured ours happened because of a combination of all three of the first reasons, and we've since loaded up on drying aid and been careful with the amount of detergent we place in the dishwasher, and so far we thankfully haven't run into a repeat - all our glasses have stayed crystal clear.
