National Wine Day: How to Clean Wine Glasses to Prevent Cloudiness

National Wine Day

National Wine Day is a wine lovers’ favourites day! A special moment to try out different wine brands and unwind with friends and family.

While you shop for your favourite wine, don’t forget that you need sparkling glasses for a perfect day.

However, if you notice cloudiness after a thorough wash, you probably use the wrong cleaning methods.

Frequent use of harmful chemicals can also cause wine glass dullness.

In this article, we will recommend the best techniques for sparkling wine glasses!

What Makes a Wine Glass Dull?

Cloudy glasses don’t just happen. Two main factors are the culprits:

  1. Hard Water Mineral Build-up

Hard water contains a high level of minerals like calcium bicarbonate and magnesium. Overtime, these minerals can leave deposits on your glass and cause dullness.

Apart from glass cloudiness, you can detect the hardness of water from its unpleasant taste. Besides, if working up a lather with soap is tough, you’re dealing with hard water.

OneTab's Hard Scale Eliminator helps you deal with glass cloudiness. It brightens wine glasses by removing calcium and other minerals.

  1. Etching from High Heat or Excessive Drying

A worn-out glass can look dull. If you notice partial or complete etching, one of these factors may be the cause.

  • Regular usage: If you’ve used the same set of glasses for years, you probably need think you need to buy new ones. Well there is no need to, because OneTab's Hard Scale Eliminator will save the day!
  • Harmful chemicals: Utilizing the wrong dishwasher detergent can deposit harmful chemicals on your glasses' surface as well as harmful bacteria.
