Simple Tip: Wash Wine Glasses in Lukewarm Water

I don't think anyone really enjoys washing wine glasses. But, if you drink wine, you'll have glasses to wash. While I have an assortment of glasses, some of which I put in the dishwasher, the nice stemware must be washed by hand. I used to wash them with really hot water until I realized it made the glasses very easy to break. Now I always wash wine glasses with soapy lukewarm water. It keeps the delicate glass from shattering in your hands.

Do you have a tip for cleaning wine glasses? Please share with us below!

using a bottle washer is the best way to clean wine glasses. and thank you Partysugar for the tip about the lukewarm water. I have broken many a glass with hot water.

Place kitchen towels at the bottom of the sink to prevent stem ware from shattering in case it slips from your hands.

If the lipstick's already on the glasses, add a few drops of ammonia to warm soapy water and scrub as usual. :] Better yet, avoid the situation entirely - licking the rim of the glass before you take your sip will prevent the lipstick from sticking at all! Sounds totally weird, but it's easier to be stealthy about it then you'd imagine - and it definitely works!
