Glass corrosion by the dishwasher - is that possible?


That's very likely. The milky cloudiness of the glasses is caused by micro-fine cracks on the glass surface. Because of the chemical conditions in the dishwasher, the dishwasher can be the main trigger for glass corrosion. Read here how to avoid the risk.

Processes of glass corrosion

The glass corrosion is caused by the extraction of certain oxides from the glass. This is due to influences such as ph value, water hardness as well as salt content and temperature of the water.

Therefore, you should note the following things:

  • Always set the hardness of your dishwasher to the usual water hardness
  • Do not use too little detergent
  • Do not leave liquids in jars and remove jars immediately after rinsing.

Tips & Tricks

Always make sure glasses are not scratched or damaged as much as possible, and always place them in the dishwasher at a distance. Glass corrosion almost always begins with scratches.
