Acid cleaning glassware with chlorides

From:Cheryl Crowder

To those who are cleaning their glassware with hydrochloric acid or 
bleach - You are not supposed to use any solution which contains chloride 
as this will interfere with some stains, particularly silvers.  Also if 
there is residual chloride on the glass it can cause hematoxylin to 
become pale.  One is better off to just rinse the glassware with 
distilled water than to use chlorides.  Cheryl
