One of the difficult things to get perfect in the dishwasher is undoubtedly glasses. Sometimes dull, sometimes with water stains, sometimes with bad odors, the result is never fully satisfactory! However, what if I told you that there are methods to get them shiny without using rinse aid but only natural remedies? Well yes, today I am going to tell you everything you need to know to get the glasses always perfect!
The lemon trick is one of the most popular natural remedies for dishwashers and is always very effective! Lemon, in fact, has a degreasing and cleaning property that is exploited every day both in the kitchen and in the bathroom, also because it smells everything fresh! If you want to use it to get perfect glasses, you will simply have to place a pressed lemon inside the dishwasher basket near the glasses. You will see what a fantastic result!
We cannot talk about methods of making glasses shine without mentioning vinegar! In fact, we turn to a natural product that is used not only for glasses, but also for steel pots and pans. It will turn out great in the dishwasher to have shining glasses while avoiding the use of rinse aid! You will simply have to put vinegar in a spray bottle and spray it on the glasses before starting the wash. You will see that afterwards they will be perfect and without a trace of bad smell. Did you know. Spraying a little vinegar even on steel pots and pans will make them shine like new!
Citric acid is a natural rinse aid par excellence and is increasingly chosen to save money without sacrificing a great result. All you have to do is dissolve 5 ounces of citric acid in 1 quart of water; you can also add 5 or 6 drops of lemon essential oil for fragrance. Fill the rinse aid tray with this solution before washing and there you go!
Baking soda also has degreasing properties that are very useful for having shiny glasses. In general, it is great in dishwashers for vacuum washing. If you want to opt for this trick, you will simply have to spread a handful of baking soda on the glasses and then place them in the dishwasher. You can also put it on the other dishes or directly on the bottom of the appliance so that all the dishes are perfect. Start a moderate temperature wash and enjoy the fantastic result afterwards!
Washing glasses in the dishwasher is always a very delicate matter because you can run into various little problems. They may be dull, with water stains, they may smell like egg or still have impregnated the smell of the drinks inside. In order to solve these little problems you will have to pay attention to how you treat them before washing. If you have consumed liquids such as wine, milk, juice, coke and so on, I recommend filling a sink basin with hot water and pouring 1 glass of vinegar into it. Let the glasses soak for a few minutes and then move on to place them in the basket to start washing using one of the methods described above. This way you will be sure to have no little problems!
I remind you to read any washing instructions and try the remedies first on an inconspicuous corner of the glass.
