All too often, grease from fingers and lipstick can build up and cloud your beautiful wine glasses. While swishing around some dish soap with a sponge may seem like a no-brainer, scented dish soaps can affect the taste of future wine servings, and sponges are often dirty and can actually add more grease than they remove. Luckily, there is a very simple way to strip the wine glass of all grime and grease.
Things You'll Need
- Baking soda
- Soft cloth
Rinse the wine glasses thoroughly in very hot water to remove leftover wine and other debris.
Dust baking soda all over the outside and inside of the wet wine glass, and rub any particularly greasy or dirty spots with a soft cloth. The baking soda is abrasive enough to remove the grease and grime but still won't scratch the surface of the glass.
Re-rinse the wine glasses in very hot water.
Set the wine glasses upside down to allow them to air dry without water spots or streaking.
