I have several Pyrex glass measuring cups—1 cup, 2 cup, and 4 cup sizes. I like using glass, and it lasts a long time. What doesn’t last is the markings on the cups. Those red lines and numbers have been fading from being washed in the dishwasher.
Recently I have switched to washing my measuring cups by hand. I would much rather use the dishwasher because there are enough pots and pans that need to be washed by hand, but I don’t want to replace my measuring cups simply because I can’t read them anymore.
That’s my tip for you–to wash the cups by hand to keep them from fading, but I would like to know if any of you have another solution.
