Washing crystal in hard water and letting it air dry. Complex shapes cleaned in the dishwasher may retain a film of milk, egg or detergent if the rinse spray can't reach inside a bowl. The water is so hot it "bakes" on food film, or the water is so cool it leaves grease on theglass. Clear a work area; set a soft towel under the crystal to prevent chipping, and fill the glass with warm water and drop in an effervescent tablet such as a denture or antacid tablet and let the bubbles loosen and release the deposits.
Then rinse; wash with mild detergent and water; rinse again and dry. Try the same trick with baking soda and white vinegar -- add a tablespoon or more of baking soda to warm water in a vase or glass. Pour in vinegar and let the resultant fizz do the work.

All air contains water, but near the ground it is usually in the form of an invisible gas called water vapor. When warm air rises, it expands and cools. Cool air can't hold as much water vapor as warm air, so some of the vapor condenses onto tiny pieces of dust that are floating in the air and forms a tiny droplet around each dust particle.
When billions of these droplets come together they become a visible cloud. Why are clouds white? Since light travels as waves of different lengths, each color has its very own unique wavelength. Mammatus : Drooping underside pouch-like appearance of a cumulonimbus cloud in its latter stage of development. Mammatus most often are seen hanging from the anvil of a severe thunderstorm, but do not produce severe weather.
They can accompany non-severe storms as well. Contrail : Narrow, elongated cloud formed as jet aircraft exhaust condenses in cold air at high altitudes, indicative of upper level humidity and wind drift. Fog : Layer of stratus clouds on or near the ground. Different types include radiation fog forms overnight and burns off in the morning and advection fog. Hole-Punch Clouds : Also known as a fallstreak hole, this type of cloud is usually formed when the water temperature in the cloud is below freezing but the water has not frozen.
When sections of the water starts to freeze, the surrounding water vapor will also freeze and begin to descend. This leaves a rounded hole in the cloud. The theory on its creation is that a disruption of the cloud layer stability, which can be caused by a passing jet aircraft, creates a descending motion that can lead to the stimulation of evaporation, producing a hole. Cloud chart showing the different types of high, mid, and low-level clouds, as well as a number of other interesting cloud types and formations.
