That would be my guess; a deposit or film on the glass would drive water away, causing that area to be dry, and thus the salt wouldn't stick to it.

I did the test. Apparently my glasses are clean. I quickly ran some water into a glass, hung the glass upside down for about 15 seconds, then dashed salt in from a shaker.

These are only washed in my dishwasher. As I stated before, I use Cascade Commercial detergent and rinse agent, and I have a whole-house water softener. I get great lacing on glasses.

For me, the story of rinse agents affecting head is bunk. Same with using a dishwasher. I suppose if you have hard water, you'll get some scale or other residue left on your glasses and that might have some effect.

This is the video where I learned the salt trick.


And this video gave me the best tool idea to use for doing it......Even though it's an annoying video. (or at leas tthe theme song is.)


But I've yet to find as good a quality baby bottle brush to use. So I'm back to using my old bottle brush from my beer kit.

I have always just run my glasses through the dishwasher and I select the steam clean and heat dry option and they come out sparking. I have never had a problem with head retention.
