How to Care for Drinking Glasses

You might not be a daily whiskey drinker. But I am sure you know how important taking care of your drinking glasses is. You don’t just want them to last for long. You also want them to be fit for use. If left uncleaned for long, drinking glasses tend to develop while film, which, of course, can be quite frustrating to deal with. The good thing is this: the glass you used to drink water and whiskey is very easy to clean. If you would like to know how you can take care of every drinking glass you own, this guide is for you.

One of the most recommended ways to clean a drinking glass is basic cleaning. According to How To, basic cleaning is all about cleaning the glass by hand using regular water; nothing too complicated.

Give the Glass a Basic Clean

Clean glasses by hand. Fill your kitchen sink approximately one third to halfway full with warm water and add a few drops of dish washing liquid. Using a clean sponge, gently wash your glasses inside and out. Rinse thoroughly.Avoid using more than a few drops of dish soap, as excess soap can lead to streaks and residue.

When doing basic cleaning, you need to be careful with the amount of soap you use. A few drops of normal detergent should be enough. The lower the drops the better, because excess can lead to streaks and residue.

When choosing the detergent to use to clean your glasses, a post on EBay Blog recommends using natural cleansers. Natural cleaners don’t just get rid of residues in the glass. They also make the glass safe to use.

Use Natural Cleansers to Clean Glasses

If glass does become stained, a film builds up, or hard water leaves deposits, there is no need to resort immediately to harsh chemical treatments on them. After all, they hold liquids from which people drink and, while the treatments are washed away before use, traces may remain and some harsh chemical treatments are dangerous when ingested. To avoid this completely, try using a few natural do-it-yourself cleaners, including vinegar, baking soda, and lemon.

There are many natural cleansers out there. From vinegar and lemon to baking soda, you can never run out of options. And most importantly, these cleansers are usually very cheap on online stores like Amazon.

Cleaning whiskey glasses is a good way to make them durable, appealing, and useful for drinking. And Wine Cooler Direct says that storing the glasses also contributes in the cleaning process.

Store Glasses Properly

Putting them bowl-down means you run the risk of chipping them. Give them enough space in the cabinet so they will not hit each other. You can also save the boxes they came in and store them in those when you are not using them. Keep in mind, however, that crystal glasses can absorb some of the smell from the boxes, which could end up contaminating your wine.

In fact, when you store your whiskey glasses correctly, they will always stay in good shape. In addition, you won’t have to worry about breakage, or such thing as total damage that could lead to buying a new set of glasses.


You do have to clean a glass every time after use. Don’t just drink your bottle of whiskey and then forget to clean your glass. We recommend immediate cleaning because it helps to remove stains from the glass fast, at least before they stick. And after cleaning your glass, don’t forget to rinse and put it back in its storage place.
