How to clean wine glasses | Restaurant Crystal Clean - Glass Cleaner

  • Use hot water and restaurant crystal clean to get the best results.
  • Leave water in the glasses overnight if you're washing them the next day; this should hopefully loosen up any leftover wine.
  • Be careful not to twist it as you wash and dry it; this may break the glass.

It's essential to clean wine glasses after use, whether three hours after the event or two days later. Fingerprints, leftover wine and marks can spoil fine wine glassware if left for some time. Therefore they require special care and attention.

Below is an easy to follow step-by-step guide on cleaning glassware using Restaurant Crystal Clean glass cleaner and a handy cleaning brush. This cleaner is also suitable for decanters and other glass items.

Wine Glass Cleaning...the dos and don'ts!

Do's Don'ts
  • Rinse the glasses with water after use (set aside to clean the day after)
  • Use a specialist glass cleaning brush (without hard edges) and glassware cleaning liquid.
  • If using a dishwasher, use the shortest cycle possible (the machine must be clean and limescale free)
  • Use a microfibre cloth as opposed to a tea towel (this will reduce friction and excessive force)
  • Never wash fine glassware straight after using.
  • Avoid using a sink brush and everyday washing up liquid.
  • When polishing, don't twist the bowl and/or stem.
  • Don't use economy or long settings if using a dishwasher.

How do I clean a wine glass?

Most wine connoisseurs and enthusiasts will agree that crystal stemware should be washed by hand using hot water. This is the best and most reliable way to clean your glasses and prevent the risk of damage.

  1. Rinse the glassware in hot water to remove any leftover wine or sediment.
  2. Add a couple of drops of restaurant crystal clean to your bowl/basin of hot water, or use a drop of restaurant crystal clean per glass. 
  3. Using a cleaning brush (usually a sponge), clean the glass (the bowl, legs, base etc.) Tip: hold carefully at the bowl to avoid breakage. It is best not to hold by the stem, as this is often the most delicate part.
  4. Rinse inside and out with hot water to remove any cleaner.  
  5. Use a cleaning cloth to dry your glasses. This also removes any watermarks and creates a crystal clear finish! 
  6. Now all that is left is to pour a glass of wine!
