Caring For Your Crystal

Now that you have a beautiful set of crystal glasses, learn how to take proper care of them.


To hand-wash, add dishwashing liquid to warm water, and always ensure that the wash and rinse water are at the same temperature. After cleaning, place glasses upside down on a towel for air drying. When washing crystal stemware, always hold the glass by the bowl, never by the stem, and do not twist the bowl and the stem in opposite directions when washing or drying.

Remove Discolouration or Streaking

Add 1 tablespoon of vinegar or isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol to the rinse water. For extra shine, steam over boiling water and polish with a microfiber cloth. This will ensure that your crystal is always a show-stopping addition to any dinner party, event or even just your well-deserved evening relaxation.

For Tough Dirt

Soak the glassware in water with a squirt of dishwashing liquid and 1/2 teaspoon of fabric softener, and leave overnight.


Store glass in a cabinet, away from dust particles, over a cloth mat. Leave at least 2cm between your glasses to avoid chipping or hang them upside down in a specialised wine glass rack.
