Preparing a Cleaner for Corelle

The ideal cleaner for Corelle is a mixture of a few different items that you probably have in your home: Dish detergent, vinegar, baking soda and hot water. Prepare a sink full of hot water with just a few drops of detergent, and 1/4 cup of baking soda. Place the Corelle into the sink and pour in one cup of vinegar. When the vinegar and baking soda meet there will be a fizzing chemical reaction.


Allow the Corelle dishes to soak in the sink overnight. This will give the natural cleansing properties of the vinegar and baking soda time to work at loosening grease stains and baked-on food marks. Dish detergent is formulated to lift away dirt and debris and disperse it into the water. Soaking cuts down on you wasting effort in scrubbing at the stains before they are loosened.


In the morning, dip a damp cloth into baking soda and use it to rub any stains or marks that you can still see on the Corelle. Baking soda is a gentle scrubbing product that won't damage or scratch your dishes. Rinse well with warm water and dry with a soft cloth. Your Corelle should now be free of yellowish grease stains and baked-on foods and will look like new. You can repeat this process as often as your Corelle needs it.
