Boil white vinegar and water at a 1 to 1 solution (1 cp to 1 cp) in a sauce pan. Soak your glassware for 15 to 20 minutes in the solution. When they are done wash them in soap and water and hand dry them. If they still come out cloudy or they have obvious substantial stains you can use just vinegar the same way and it will help get them even cleaner.
