Need help from all you die-hard etchers out there ...

I have recently replaced my glass dinnerware with new stuff. So now I have a almost complete set of 16 dinner plates, salad plates, bowls, saucers (some have broken in the 11 years I've had them). The dinner plates are pretty scratched up, from steak knives and such. So rather than throw out perfectly good dinnerware (because I can't find anyone to give it to), I'm looking for ideas of how to repurpose/recycle/reuse it.

If I use etching cream, will the cream "erase" the scratches? Or maybe make them a bit less noticible? And does anyone know that once you etch glassware, is it okay to wash in the dishwasher?

Thanks for any advise you can give!   Smiley

look at the bottles or the etching cream i think i have seem one (cant remember name) that can be used with food  and i believe is dishwasher safe, but i have seen a few where is it NOT to be used with food.  so be careful and read the labels.   if you really want to you could always try sandblasting.

Thanks for the replies ... I have so many other projects lined up that quite frankly I forgot about THIS one.

I'm going to buy some etching cream and give it a shot. I'm not sure if I want to pony up the $$ for sandblasting.

Wish me luck!
