Default Pint glasses

My pint glasses got ran through the dishwasher. Fingerprints show up on them really easy so I know there is a film on them. Is there a way to remove it? I read that it can kill head retention so I was curious.

As long as you did not have a rinse-aid in the dishwasher you will have fine head retention, don't worry about it

You can always give them a wash with vinegar to strip off any film, then rinse the heck out of them.

When I got my glasses I told my wife they were not to go in the dishwasher.... however, there were so many used at Thanksgiving that she did exactly that... making me think I was going to have a problem with them. Not so... the head stays as long as it did, the lacing still clings... so for now, I'm dishwashering them. No rinse aid though.

If your glass gets run through the dishwasher it doesn't mean its ruined. Just rinse it out with some water and let it dry. No biggie.

If you are using detergent then no film should really form.

P.S. Is anyone weird like me and drink your beer by slowly rotating the glass to absorb the rings as you go or do you just let them sit and admire them?]

You can always run them through again without soap.

Occasionally, I will use a generous sprinkling of Iodized Table Salt on a wetted glass, inside and out. The NaCl does an excellent job of breaking down any residual films on the glass and has marked improvement on head retention and lacing grip.

I learned this from some on-line advert for a glass cleaner that claims "Brewery Clean" results. Could never find the stuff but, tried teh salt and IMO it really does work.

Not safe for labels tho'.

Meh.
