This tip may not apply to many of you, but if you stack glasses or glass bowls that sometimes stick to each other and don’t come apart, then this tip is for you.
In my case, it’s a set of old salad bowls with cut glass. Smooth, rounded bowls don’t have this problem, but bowls like mine do.
Despite the fact that I place them carefully inside each other when I put them away, a couple of them invariably end up stuck together.
One solution is to put a napkin, paper towel, or some type of cloth in between the bowls to keep them from sticking. I don’t like having the extra items to do deal with when I get the bowls out or put them away.
To get the stuck bowls apart, I use science. Cold causes the glass to contract and heat causes it to expand. Usually, running cold water in the top bowl does the trick. If that’s not enough, however, you could put ice in the top bowl and run warm water over the bottom bowl. The two should come apart with no problems. Be careful about using very extreme temperature differences, it could cause the glass to shatter.
