Cleaning Glassware: Kitchen Tip

 Kitchen Tip Button

A reader, Mimi, uses Efferdent to clean glassware and says that doing so makes it sparkle.

Has anyone else tried this?  I was unable to find the ingredients in Efferdent, but since it’s used to clean dentures it should be safe for cleaning glassware.

    Linda, I’ve been using Efferdent, or it’s equivalent, for years, to clean hard water marks from the inside of my vases! It really works!! Sometimes, depending on how “hard” your water is, it may take a couple of treatments. I treat my vases every time I’m finished with them.
