How to Clean Dirty & Greasy Wine Glasses

Save

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.
