Dear Etiquette Expert: How do I clean my wine glasses?

Do you find it difficult to keep your wine glasses looking sparkling clean? If so, here are some tips I picked up from my friend, Virginia Philip. Virginia owns the Virginia Philip Wine Shop & Academy in West Palm Beach, Florida.

  1. Rinse your glasses immediately after using them.
  2. Wash with warm water and a small amount of dishwashing liquid.
  3. To remove lipstick marks, scrub gently with a dishcloth.
  4. Dry with a lint-free cotton or linen towel.
  5. To polish, steam the glasses over a pot of boiling water. Hold the glass by the stem and carefully rub with a micro fiber towel or flour sack cloth.

    Dear Jacqueline:

    Thank you for this article! I am studying (again) for my Certified Sommelier exam and am gathering articles and info from many sources. This was very helpful advice, and may come into play the day of my test!

Have something to add?
