Have you ever purchased a glass vase, or pitcher, from the store and it was really cloudy? I recently purchased these pretty vases from Target and they were cloudy. But since the opening at the top is so small, I couldn’t wash them the way I would normally wash a vase.
So today I want to teach you a very simple way to clean cloudy glass, without soap and water. All you need for this trick is rubbing alcohol. Yep, that’s right, rubbing alcohol; it works great to get that cloudy film off the inside of the glass!
To clean the cloudy glass all you have to do is pour a few Tablespoons of rubbing alcohol into the glass container you would like to clean. If the container isn’t big enough to get your hand into, cover the top of it and swirl the rubbing alcohol around. You will instantly see the cloudiness disappear. Once the cloudiness is completely gone, pour the rubbing alcohol out into the sink, and set your container out to dry. You can also wash the outside with rubbing alcohol but I usually just wash the outside with soap and water.
If the container is large enough to stick your hand into, pour a little rubbing alcohol into the glass container and use a paper towel, or a lint-free cloth, and wipe the entire inside of the container with the rubbing alcohol.
The results are amazing! Just look at the difference between these two glass vases!
