    Are they streaks, or has the dishwasher damaged the glasses (etching)? If they are just 'cloudy' it might be because of hard water deposits, so make sure you are using enough rinse aid and salt and you are using enough detergent. If it is etching you cannot remove it, if its dirt/cloudy try polishing with some baking powder and water.
  • stamford
    Streaks/cloudy I try to keep it well salted and rinse aided but will try the baking powder

    Soaking streaky glasswear in a solution of soda crystals/liquid and hot water usually works for me.

    I have found it is when the salt is getting low that my glasses go cloudy - cheap machine so no warning light. So I use the salt, vinegar in the rinse compartment and the 3 in 1 tablets (bought when on special) and that combo seems to work well.

    On Old Style, that's worse than blasphemy

    Have they been in the dishwasher? If so, it may be a residue from the cleaning products used. This is especailly true if they're lead crystal.

    Alternatively, is it a greasy residue? Try wiping with a damp cloth and vinegar.

    I have a clear pyrex bowl that has gone like that. Sort of cloudy at the base. It's definitely not food desposits or anything burnt on.

    I have totally failed to get it back to its original condition, but it still works so what the heck. I know it's a bit different with glasses as they are more "seen", but perhaps you could use them for the kids' juice or something (if you have any that is).
    I haven't bogged off yet, and I ain't no babe

    You might find that this is not a residue but damage from your dishwasher. Some dishwashers wash with quite high temperatures and a fierce water action - over time this scours more delicate finishes. I know it is recommended that silver/gold decorated china is not put in a dishwasher as it removes the metal finish, so I imagine that over time glass would be affected too. Same thing for a pyrex bowl - think how many thousands of times metal implements have scraped over the bottom over the years.
