Forget the streaks, and let’s learn how to clean a wine glass to go with that favorite bottle of wine we all love to drink.

Imagine this…you had a long day at work and came home to cook a delicious meal. It was time to open up that bottle of wine you had been waiting all week to open. You opened your cupboard and reached for a wine glass, but found dirty streaks in the glass. You quickly grabbed a paper towel to wipe away the streaks but it was just not working. Well, let me tell you a little secret- you are using the wrong cleaning products. Stop using paper towels and instead reach for a wiping cloth to clean your wine glass.

To some, this may not be bothersome to have a dirty streak in their wine glass. But if it’s possible to clean something that you cherish and brings you enjoyment then doing it the right away just makes sense and will probably reduce a little stress in your life.

Additionally, nothing is worse than having house guests for your next dinner party and pulling out a streaky, spotty wine glass. One more hassle and step to party prepping to deal with that can easily be avoided with the proper supplies.

Wine glasses can be tough to clean and easy to break.

Learn how to hand clean a wine glass with a microfiber cloth to get a perfectly clean finish.

I always suggest using a high quality microfiber cloth because wine glasses can scratch easily. Also, they don’t leave fibers behind and will remove streaks and stains. Microfiber towels can hold up to seven times their weight in water so they are very absorbent too.

  • Step 1: To start, take a plastic tub and fill it with mildly warm water (too hot can crack the glass) and just a drop of detergent.
  • Step 2: Hold the bowl of the glass and not the stem while washing because the stem can break easily.
  • Step 3: Using the microfiber cloth, clean the rim, bottom of the glass, and the outside of the bowl.
  • Step 4: You want to make sure you rinse off all soap suds on both the inside and outside of the glass.
