That pretty crystal bud vase sporting one long-stemmed rose looks spectacular on your desk or window sill – until you notice it’s collected cloudy mineral residue on the inside surface. It’s probably too delicate to scrub with a bottlebrush, as you might scratch the glass.
TIP: Fill the vase almost full with water, and drop a denture cleaning tablet in it. Let it sit overnight, then wrap a clean cloth around a butter knife of bottlebrush and swap the interior of the vase. It should sparkle like new. If that doesn’t work, try undiluted white vinegar in place of the denture tablet. Use vinegar in the rinse water for extra shine.
