Foggy Wine Glasses Are Not The End Of The World!

Perhaps one of the most troubling problems which usually occurs that takes the enjoyment out of having a glass of wine is when even though your glasses are clean, look very foggy. We have all encountered it at one time or another and probably all can agree that there is something detracting about a foggy wine glass. Before you decide to throw out your glasses or invest in a set of inexpensive ones with the thought that fogging is inevitable so you might as well be ready to throw them away when the time comes, there are a few things that you can do to prevent fogging and bring back the glorious sparkle and shine to foggy glasses that you remember from when they were first purchased.

I know that some think that it?s perfectly all right to put wine glasses in the dishwasher, and some machines even have special sections on the top rack to hold wine glass stems in place. We all know that crystal should never be put in the dishwasher, so I assume said stem holders are for everyday glasses. My dishwasher has them and I still won?t use it to wash wine glasses. Why? There are two main reasons for this, the first is that dishwasher detergent tends to be a lot more harsh and abrasive and can etch your wine glasses making it fog with repeated washing, and second is that the temperature in a dishwasher can become so hot that it can actually cause a glass to crack.

With that being said, when washing wine glasses by hand the best method is actually quite simple, especially since you should be able to simply rinse out yours glasses to clean them. First, it is important to remember to use lukewarm water and not hot water. Abrasive cleaning agents should be avoided at all costs; and if you feel the need to use soap it is best to only use mild liquid dish soap. Remember to never use hard scrubbing sponges and cloths and to rinse the glasses thoroughly or the soap will leave a film deposit which will fog with build up and time and thus defeats the purpose of taking care when washing your glasses.

If you have taken care of your glasses and hand-washed them and still find they are starting to fog, there is still something you can do. Soak the foggy glasses in straight white vinegar for two to three hours. Then wash with warm water and mild liquid dish soap and repeat the soaking process if necessary to remove the remaining residue. It might be a bit of a time consuming process, but it will be worth it in the end when you have sparkling glasses that look beautiful!

Rainy New Year @ Manila Philippines Preparation for New Year's Eve dinner (also known as Medya Noche) begins in the morning here in the Philippines. In spite of the rain that plagues midnight's celebration, people are still in a festive mood. Groceries are open until 8pm so lines to the cashier are jam packed. Mass is a tradition on the last day of the year to be thankful for the blessings for the ending year and to look forward for opportunities for the coming year. After mass, New Year's

End of Year Miscellanea

Took an unplanned blogging vacation. It was kind of nice. I'll have been at this five years in February, and it's amazing to me how much of an obligation it feels like sometimes. Next semester will be janky as well, as I'm teaching ten sections. Still not sure how I'm going to survive it; at least none of the classes are brand new ones. I'm finding myself more and more exhausted by conversations with theists. Three this week, two of which went horribly. It's befuddling to me how they phrase cho

Cheese got a full, pregnant woman’s face to me! What joo guys think? I mean, come on! Cheese pooshing 40!

food pairing

Lots of people are making resolutions to lose weight, get in shape, or eat more healthily in the new year. Here is something that I've always found interesting to consider: food pairing. To get the most nutritional benefit from some foods, it helps to eat them with specific others or to avoid certain pairings. I'm not all into the synergy style diet, but for maximum health it's definitely worth considering a few combos. It's like 1 + 1 equaling 4 or 6 instead of 2, the total benefit is grea

Last Post of the Year

Wed, 31 Dec 2008 12:42:40 -0800
The end of the year is a big tidying-up time for me. All year long I’m accumulating projects that I want to finish “by the end of the year,” and the last week of the year becomes a mad dash to the finish line. Some I’ll finish; some I won’t. It’s the trying that’s important. I wanted to close out the year by following up on some unanswered questions: Omly asked two questions: Did you ever end up being able to repel the mice in the car? How was your harvest of compost from the worms? Ha ha! T
