If a bottle brush can't fit into the opening of a narrow-necked vase, try this hint my mother used: Put several broken eggshells into the vase and then add a bit of water. Place your hand over the opening and shake the vase until you can see that the dust and film has come off. Rinse well.

I have a very plain clear glass serving bowl, very sturdy. It needs to be cleaned, as it has that 'older foggy' look. What is the best solution to soak this in?

I just read to clean with baking soda and vinegar. The solution fizzes like alka seltzer. I havent tried yet but am going to do it right now. This cleans out stuggish drains so it will probably work on glass too.

I get a box of generic brand denture tabs, and keep at home. Use the tabs in your vases, thermoses, etc. Just fill with warm water, add a tablet or two, and let sit overnight.

Then rinse out in the AM, and scrub with a baby bottle scrubber if available.

the overnight tablet is usually enough. Best of luck to you!

Wash your glass bud vase with Cascade, dishwasher soap. If that doesn't work, try using Lime A-way. It will get rid of the hard water deposits.

Take a broken-up denture cleansing tablet and drop down into vase, fill with hot water and let sit overnight. If a little scrubbing is needed after the overnight soak, use a small child's toothbrush fits down into the vase for further cleaning.

Gently scour with an S.O.S. pad and rinse. This works on burnt on food, also on glass baking dishes.

Please don't try to clean it without knowing exactly what it is. Please try to find an antique evaluator if you have even a hint if the item has sentimental value. Some old glass has reactive material and will not take kindly to acid material like vinegar. If it is pieced together do not soak it. I work for an art museum but am not a curator. It depends on what type of material and how important/nostalgic it is to you and even the shape. If you must experiment try using mild soap and water on a soft cloth, which you may need to do multiple times. Beware of brushes. If you are okay with experimenting try a calcium/lime/rust remover product on a limited area, not soaking it. I have used these even in a coffeemaker.

Try denture cleaning tabs if it looks like it is safe to hold water.

Unsightly stains in glass vases respond to soaking in a strong solution of hot vinegar. Finish by washing in hot soapy water.
