How to Clean a Cloudy Glass Vase: 4 Simple Tips
Nothing beats a sparkling clear vase to show off a new bouquet of flowers; keep the vase looking fresh for longer with a little help from salt, vinegar – and denture tablets.
Why Do Glass Vases Get Cloudy?
Cloudiness in a vase occurs when the vase contains hard water, which is water with calcium and other minerals. When the water isn’t changed out, it leaves calcium deposits on glass, creating the foggy look. For this reason, it’s important to not leave water standing for too long – not just for the look of your vase, but for the health of your flowers, as well!
Did you know you can use the above methods for other cloud-susceptible containers, as well? If you find yourself stuck scrubbing the inside of a coffee pot, jar, dish or bowl with a foggy film residue, calcium buildup could be the culprit – and a tablet or two of effervescence or pinch of baking soda + vinegar could be all that’s needed to return it to good-as-new condition.
