How To Clean Cloudy Glasses and Glassware For Good!
I was thrilled with how nicely the OxiClean worked on my glasses! It was amazing the difference it made. I had a hard time getting a good picture to really show the difference but you can see here that the glass on the left is the cloudy “before” glass and the glass on the right is the “after”. I put that glass through the dishwasher with Oxiclean Dishwashing Booster and that’s all I did! I’m amazed that it took the cloudy film off the glasses.
After doing my little test with the OxiClean dishwashing booster I read some interesting facts on why my old rinse aid wasn’t working anymore. I’m not alone in my frustration. 49% feel frustrated because they don’t know what’s causing the spots on dishes. And I’m also not the only one embarrassed to serve my guests water in a cloudy glass. 88% agree or strongly agree that it is embarrassing to serve on dishes that have spots or are cloudy.
I also learned something I didn’t know.
In July 2010, a ban on phosphates required the reformulation of dishwasher detergents. Since then, consumers have noticed that their dishes are just not as clean as they used to be. In fact, many experience a cloudy film on their glasses and dishes that can build up over time. Some consumers may have even considered replacing their dishwasher to try and resolve the problem….but it’s not the dishwashers fault ! OxiClean Dishwashing Booster can eliminate spots, residue, and cloudy film in just one wash and then keep dishware crystal clear wash after wash.
Okay I was one of those that thought I needed a new dishwasher 🙂 Although I’m happy with our new one. It does a better job of getting the food off the dishes. So why is OxiClean different than other rinse aides?
How it works:
The unique multi-action formula dissolves the cloudy film (hard water salts and calcium carbonate) that builds up during the rinse cycle.
To eliminate the cloudy film in just one wash (Get the OxiClean First Wash Wow):
1) Add two squirts of OxiClean Dishwashing Booster into the bottom of the dishwasher
2) And, fill the rinse agent dispenser
3) Place your detergent in main wash cup as usual
For ongoing use to help keep the cloudy film from returning:
1) Refill rinse agent dispenser with Booster as needed (about once per month) – No additional rinse agent is needed
2) For tough film and spots, add two squirts into bottom of the dishwasher
I was really impressed with the Oxiclean Dishwashing Booster. It saved my glasses from a trip to the trash and saved me the embarrassment of serving my guests a drink in a cloudy glass. If you have the same problem with your glasses or dishware then give it a try! For our cloudy glasses we added 2 squirts in the bottom of the dishwasher as well as filling the rinse agent dispenser and it worked in just one wash!

*I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of OxiClean and received a product sample and serving tray to facilitate my review, and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
I went and bought a bix box of TSP at home depot (tri-calcium phosphate) which is the same stuff they took out of dishwashing detergent… I add 1/2-1 tsp to each cycle with my detergent and it works great too! A box will last about a year doing dishes almost every day! (and only costs $10-15)
TSP is tri-sodium phosphate, not tri-calcium phosphate.
Thus, TSP, not TCP.
PIE didn't know oxi clean had this in their product line up, pretty impressive on the before and after
Oh im gonna try this,,I cant keep my glasses from looking dingy,
Katrina, there are good reasons that TSP was taken out of many cleaning products. It is very harmful to the environment, especially rivers and lakes. My glasses are always sparkling and I only use environmentally friendly products. Biokleen automatic dish powder is the best. And I use white vinegar in the rinse agent compartment of my dishwasher.
Thank you for your information and caring.
Claudia Phillips , i didn’t know tsp was environmentally harmful. Thank you for posting that.
Oxy clean is just peroxide, so couldn’t you just pour in some peroxide?
I bought a bag of citric acid on Amazon and add a couple table spoons to each cycle (and whilte laundry loads too) and everything sparkles. Good for envoronment too.
Yep, it is great for the environment and works great when washing whites.
I would love to know where do you place the citric acid in your dishwasher? Thanks
I put about 2 squirts in the bottom of the dishwasher and then fill the rinse agent dispenser.
Using white vinegar as the rinse agent gets you the same results.
I have extremely hard water so my dishes had white spots all the time. I found a product called Lemi Shine! Here is a link to the website so you can see what the container looks like. http://lemishine.com/products/detergent_booster/
I just use about a tablespoon and put it in the detergent cup with about a 2 tablespoons of powder dish detergent. The first time I used it I had to call my family over to look at the dishes because they were sparkling clean. It also can be used to clean the inside of the dishwasher. If you have hard water spots this is the product you should try. I swear by it.
Any tips for us that have to wash glasses by hand? Also my plastic containers et spots when they are air drying.
Try to add two or three tablespoons of vinegar in your dish water. If that doesn’t work, try to slowly increase the vinegar until you figure out the amount that works for you. Also, rinse in cold water before you let anything air dry. That should help with the cloudy glasses and spots on the plastic.
I have hard water, vinegar, lemishine and all others haven’t worked. I’ll have to try the Oxyclean. There used to be a product called Glass magic that really was magic and worked so awesome. It was bought out and not found anymore. 🙁
I hate when you find something that works and then you can’t get it anymore. I’m sure you will like the Oxyclean as much as I do.
