    Soak in white cleaning vinegar.

    Note that if it's from a dishwasher it's possible they are etched rather than just foggy but vinegar is an expensive way to see.

    Once you have them clean, if you use a dishwasher add 1 drop of blue Dawn to the detergent before you run a cycle. Also, give your dishwasher a good cleaning.

    Wash with dishsoap water and scrub to remove the fog. Then use only "Finish" pods for the washing cycle and "finish liquid" for the rinse dispenser. I did this and it really works to maintain clear glasses. I too was upset and embarrassed of the fog. There was no etching on my glasses.

    Hi Jennifer: T o figure out if your glasses have fogged up because of your water, soak a small dish towel or rag in a small amount of white vinegar and wipe the glass with the cloth. If the glass is no longer cloudy, then the cloudiness was caused by hard water build up.

    Fill a pot with equal parts vinegar and water. Soak your cloudy glassware in the vinegar solution: Put your cloudy glassware in the solution and let the pieces soak for about 30 minutes. Test one of the glasses for cloudiness: Take one of the glasses out of the solution and give it a rinse.
