Doesn’t it drive you crazy when in the midst of party prep, you reach for glasses to set the table,  pulling them out of the cabinet only to find them spotty or with a pool of dust settled at the bottom? If you’re hosting a party and wine glasses will be on the table (as they should be!), here’s a great little tip to get those glasses streak-free and the best part, it doesn’t involve manual labor: simply run your glassware in a hot water only cycle on your dishwasher.

Not only can dish soap leave streaks on the glass, but it can also affect the taste of your wine — another reason to consider running the dishwasher sans soap next time.

    For extra sparkle I add a cup of vinegar. All the cloudiness and streaks disappear.
