I have a set of 12 white wine glasses that my dishwasher has ruined... standard model, very plain. The dishwasher has scratched the surface so that they look a bit milky in places. Any ideas or must I throw them away?

What do you think of using that etching spray on them?

If they're broken, you should probably throw them away. If not, they can still be used for wine. Some crystal wine glass are designed to be frosty. But if you don't want to use them for wine, try a few things. Use them for desert,  jelly, pudding or fruit salad. Put potpurri in them and place them in bathroom or end table. Put tea light candle in them and add glass marbles around the candle to hide the ream and lit them at nite. Some people use them for liquid candle (you can buy the materials from the craft store) but use with caution. Too many uses for them.

Etching. What a brilliant idea.
Why didn't I think of this?

I sometimes use overly-loved wine and champagne glasses to start various cuttings from my patio plants..  They look cheery with three or four lined up along the windowsill with little sprigs of ivy in them.. 

I've always wanted to try that etching stuff, though..  Post pics if you try it!  Smiley
