Try a paper towel and white vinegar. The vinegar smell will dissipate as it dries.


Good Luck!

Easier still; fill the glass to above the mark with plain vinegar, let stand overnight. If the mark hasn't dissolved fully, give it another day. I bought a gorgeous crystal vase at a thrift store for about 4 dollars that had a similar stain, overnight and the mark was gone! (11/01/2005)

Even easier, just fill the sink with water, pour in a glug of vinegar (maybe a quart or less?), put in the glassware and let it soak a bit. Then just wipe the scum off. We have incredibly hard water and I clean the film off our glasses every few months (well, maybe more often if company is coming and I want to impress them). (11/01/2005)

First, I found that the dishwasher leaves a lot of hard water spots so I now wash all my glassware by hand.
When I do find hard water spots, I use Lime-Away in a spray bottle. A very small amount sprayed on the spot usually does a pretty good job. (11/02/2005)

Fill the stemmed piece with vinegar diluted with a little water and let stand about 20 minutes. Wash and dry. (11/02/2005)

I have hard water as well, when my dishwasher is on the rinse cycle I pour a little vinegar in it and I have no hard water spots. A lot easier than washing by hand! (11/04/2005)
