Having spent many hours on the Internet looking for ways to remove the “bloom” on wine glasses caused by dishwashers, I could write my own website on failed attempts. This seems a common problem that many people have encountered, but no one seems to have a viable solution.

From soaking in vinegar to using acetone, there are many ideas that are reported to work, but having tried them all I can reliably say that I have not found one that works 100 per cent, until now. I have found that a quick rub, 30 seconds is all it took, of Meg-uiar’s Ultimate Compound restored the glass to perfect condition. I am sure that other rubbing compounds may have similar results, but I can say, this is no old wives’ tale. Now for the rest in the cupboard.
