I’m a chef – how to get your cutlery & glassware sparkling every time using a $1 kitchen item

CLEAN dishes are achievable, but sparkling-clean, crystal-clear silverware and glassware can seem like a television fantasy.

One expert's genius hack makes sparkling dishes doable with an effortless, incredibly cheap kitchen staple you can get at the dollar store.


Erin Morley is a professional chef, so she knows all the tricks used to solve heavy-duty messes in industrial kitchens.

"I learned this in the restaurant business fifteen years ago and I do it every day, and I never thought to show you," Morley explained to her TikTok followers.

Morley dared to open up to her followers – literally – and show the dirty dishes inside her dishwasher, which she called "grimy, greasy, disgusting."

But that grime wouldn't last long thanks to her professional hack.

"All you do is take a piece of tin foil, roll it up in a ball, and put it in your silverware basket," Morley explained.

She took a square of aluminum foil, wadded it into a ball, and lodged it firmly among her forks and spoons.

Then, just add your dish detergent, and "clean as you normally would," Morley said.

Chemical compounds in the dishwashing detergent react with the aluminum, creating a reaction that breaks down grime and grease but also battles the tarnish that dulls silverware over time.

It's the same science that sparked a viral jewelry-cleaning trend on TikTok in the past.

Or, as Morley put it: "It makes your silverware and your glassware shinier than you've ever seen it."

"You know that FInish stuff you put in the little spout?" Morley said. "You don't need that anymore."

When her dishwasher cycle finished, Morley made her big reveal.

Her silverware, which had been coated in grease before the cleaning cycle, shone in the light.

"Look at how everything is sparkling," Morley said with pride.

"Even my glassware is perfection," she added, showing off her crystal-clear drinking tumblers.

In the comments section, Morley answered questions from viewers who were eager to try the hack.
