Glass corrosion from the dishwasher - is that possible?

In fact, it is 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 cause of glass corrosion. Read here how you can avoid the risk.

Processes in glass corrosion

Glass corrosion is caused by the leaching of certain oxides from the glass. Influences such as pH value, water hardness as well as salt content and temperature of the water are responsible for this.

You should therefore pay attention to the following things:

  • Always set the hardness level of your dishwasher to the local water hardness
  • Do not use too little detergent
  • Do not leave liquids in glasses and remove glasses from the dishwasher immediately after washing.
Tips & Tricks Always make sure that glasses are not scratched or damaged, and always put them in the dishwasher with a distance. Glass corrosion almost always starts with scratches.
