If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is to add some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1/4 of white vinegar and it will clear up your glasses very well.
You should see marked improvement after the first time you do this. If they are not crystal clear then simply repeat the process until all of the cloudiness is gone. In fact I recommend to using a little vinegar in each cycle to maintain the clarity of the glass.

Note: you can pre-test this by rubbing some vinegar on an individual glass with a cloth. If you cannot remove the cloudiness by soaking it and rubbing vinegar on it then it is possible that the glass is etched due to harsh or cheap dishwasher detergent and vinegar will not solve the problem.

If soaking or cleaning with vinegar works then try adding some to each cycle to see if the clarity of the glasses improves.

After a complete cycle now have a milky residue


The milky residue on the glasses is not a residue at all: it is irreversible damage to the glass and is caused by a myriad of microscopic cracks in the glass surface combined with surface etching. Vinegar only works if there's a limescale deposit caused by using too little salt (no salt at all, or the salt dispenser set too low, or just not adding supplementary salt in a hard water area when using dishwasher powders with an in-built salt function)

It can happen to most glassware, but will happen very quickly to lead crystal which is why every single dishwasher I've ever sold or rented out says not to put them in the dishwasher. So called "glass protection" dishwasher powders are a marketing gimmick; all they do is to try and eliminate chlorides from the mix and boost the salt content, but they won't actually stop the damage completely.

Similarly, most advise against putting silverware in the dishwasher. By silverware I specifically mean anything made of silver, plated with silver or electroplated nickel silver (EPNS). Stainless steel is fine though. You might like to read this short article on the subject.

Cloudy glasses My dishes are not being cleaned. There is a white residue on my glasses and in the dishwasher itself.


You may have hard water. Are you using a rinse aid, you always need to use one. Buy some Tang drink crystals and empty a package into the soap dispenser and run the dishwasher through empty. If you can't buy Tang use about 4-6 cups of white vinegar thrown in the bottom of the machine and run the cycle. Sometimes the white residue on the glasses is there permanently and can't be removed it is called "etching" right in the glass.
