Sit back and enjoy a glass of wine. Many people like to relax at the end of a hard day with a glass of wine, but they don't pay much attention to the glass the wine is consumed from. Spending money on wine glasses should make the purchaser want to properly care for the wine glasses, including storage. Maintaining the quality of the glass relies on proper washing, storage and serving. A quality glass can quickly turn poor without the proper attention and care.
Things You'll Need
- Storage rack or cabinet
Store wine glasses upright, just as when the glass is being used. Placing the wine glass in this position prevent chips and cracks in the crystal.
Provide space between wine glasses. Allow the glasses room to breathe. Giving each wine glass a little space prevents cracking and chips. If your space is limited, think about alternating every other glass stem down. Do not try this technique with fine, old or delicate crystal.
Consider a wine glass rack. Storing wine glasses in a rack or cabinet offers better protection than a box or bin. Crystal wine glasses can absorb the odors of a cardboard box and contaminate the wine. Placing wine glasses in a wine glass rack provides a convenient place to put the glasses after washing and makes a beautiful display.
Rotate wine glasses. Move wine glasses to the back of the cabinet or rack after each use. Grab wine glasses to use from the front each time. Rotating wine glasses prevents the deterioration of the glass and can extend the life of the wine glass.
