Tips Tuesday! Cleaning Glassware and Dishes
Continuing in the kitchen, how about those dishes and glassware?
Glassware and Dishes
Never put a delicate glass in hot water bottom side first. It will crack from sudden expansion. The most delicate glassware will be safe it is is slipped in edgewise.
After washing crystal, rinse in 1 part vinegar to 3 parts warm water, then air dry.
Before washing fine china or crystal, put a towel in the sink to cushion the pieces.
When two glasses are stuck together, fill the top one with cold water and dip the bottom one in hot water.
Scratches in glassware will disappear if you polish them with toothpaste.
Use the cheapest dish detergent available, but add a few tablespoons of vinegar to the dishwater. The vinegar cuts the grease and leaves dishes sparkling!
Quickly remove food that is stuck in a casserole dish by filling it with boiling water and 2 Tbs of baking soda or salt.
