Cleaning Hard Water Spots Off Of Crystal

We have really hard water, and I wish I could figure out the best way to clean the water spots off my crystal wine glasses. Does any one have any tips? Of course I know that if I buff them when they are wet, but was wondering if there is a special fabric or something which would help and make life easier.

If you are washing these in the dishwasher, you could try a cup or so of vinegar in the last rince. I used to do this when I lived in a town with hard water and I had no water softer. It also prevented a film on dark china like the brown teapot. You could give it a try.

I agree with the vinegar. I keep a jar of vinegar under my sink and when I need it I put the vinegar in a dish and roll the glasses in the vinegar and then rinse in hot water. I put the vinegar back into the jar and use the same vinegar over and over.

I have the hardest water out of all of you all . Most times a warm white vinegar and water soak will remove the spots but I have had some in which it did not. I used some fine metal polish in a final try to remove the spots from some glass and had amaizing results. You might try one of those metal polishing cloths to remove them as I do't believe the product I used is available anymore. I used," Haggerty's 100 metal polish". Last time I found some was at a jewelers.
