Fill the sink with hot water, and pour in vinegar. Immerse the glasses in the solution, and then let them soak to remove the film. If the vinegar does not remove the film, the glasses may require replacement due to permanent etching from dishwasher detergent.
Remove the glasses from the vinegar water. Drain the sink, and then fill it with hot water and dish detergent. Wash each glass by hand. Rinse the glasses in the hottest water possible to speed the process.
Use a lint-free towel to dry the glasses. Towel-drying prevents the formation of water spots on the glass due to all the minerals dissolved in hot water. Store the glassware upside-down on level shelves. Line the shelves with open matting, and protect the glasses from smoke and grease by keeping the cupboards closed.
