How to prevent glass etching in the dishwasher
I have read various threads here on this issue. I have drinking glasses from Target that are only 6 months old and I just noticed that they are starting to etch. :( I am not happy -- I love these glasses and now they look terrible!
We have soft water and I have been using Cascade tablets with rinse aid.
From what I've read on here, the possible solutions to prevent further etching are:
*Use less detergent
*Use cheap detergent
*Use powdered detergent, not liquid or tabs
*Don't use heated dry
*Don't prerinse dishes -- the dirtier the dishes, the better.
So, anyone else have any ideas? I am almost out of detergent so I will probably try some powdered cheap stuff and maybe less of it. I just hope it still cleans my dishes!
And I guess I will buy some more drinking glasses to replace these. I can't stand looking at cloudy filmy glasses!
