There are plenty of items you shouldn’t stick in your dishwasher. Did you know there are also some items you shouldn’t be washing at all?
Okay, so not washing is a strong term, but you shouldn’t be washing your wine glasses with soap.
Yes, we know this sounds odd, but once you hear why, it’ll all make sense. Detergents can actually damage your delicate glasses. Residue can easily be left behind on the glass and build-up making them cloudy over time. Ultimately, this could also alter the taste of your wine.

Instead of traditional detergents, opt for vinegar. Add a bit of vinegar and water to your glass, and then, using a soft, non-abrasive sponge, clean the glass. Rinse well with hot water, and then, dry the glass using a microfiber towel that won’t leave behind streaks or scratches.
If you’ve been washing your glasses with soap or placing them in the dishwasher, they might have become cloudy. This method is the same one you’ll use to fix it. The only difference is that you’ll need to let them soak for about half an hour before using a sponge and drying.
