Pour 2 cups of white distilled vinegar into a microwave-safe container. Microwave the vinegar on high for two minutes.
Pour the warm vinegar into a large rectangular plastic container. Place the glasses on their sides into the container. You may need to treat the glasses in batches.
Soak the glasses for five minutes. Rotate the glasses until you treat all the sides.
Rinse the glasses under cool running water. Dry them with a lint-free microfiber towel.
Apply nail polish remover to a cotton ball if the hard water remains. Wipe the acetone on the glasses and then wash them with mild dish soap. Dry the glasses after you wash them.
