Cleaning Mineral Deposits from Crystal Vases

November 12, 2008

Two crystal vasesMy crystal vases and crystal glasses that were left with water for more than a couple of days have mineral deposit rings where the water level was. I tried vinegar, but that did not work. Does anybody know how to clean these rings, possibly without using harsh chemicals?

I've used CLR in my crystal vases and it's removed all the discoloration and film.

I soak mine in an orange cleaner found at the dollar tree. It comes in a clear spray bottle with red writing and lists various items that it can be used on. After soaking, I scrub lightly with a very gentle steel wool pad. It works wonders compared to every thing else I have tried! Very little scrubbing involved.

Have heard that a tablet used for cleaning false teeth can be put in a vase (with water) - soak overnight.

Can anyone tell me how to clean water/mineral deposits from a vase? I have an antique bud vase - glass - that has deposits.
