the power of vinegar

Let me just start out by saying how much I love a good before and after. I love vacuuming after Charlie brings in dirt just to see the final product- a clean rug!

I've been noticing how dirty our drinking glasses have looked for awhile now and I finally decided to do something about it today. I read some time ago about the power of vinegar and wanted to try it out. I mixed 1.5 cups of vinegar into a plastic tub full of warm water.

I put three glasses in at time and let them soak for about 10 minutes. I rinsed them with hot water after soaking and the final product was just beautiful!

Check out this wonderful before and after photo. Seriously, this makes me all giddy.

All done! (excuse the gross cabinet... if we owned the house, we'd paint)


  1. ahhhh i'm seriously so glad you posted this! My glasses have been looking the same and i was seriously considering just getting new ones. I'm gonna try this trick first though!

  2. I saw something on pinterest about vinegar taking the rust of off tools too... magical! Those glasses look great!
