The care of glassware
If you have a collection of nice glassware for your home, then keeping it in tip-top condition is a priority and there are certain rules with regards to cleaning and maintenance.
Any particularly nice or designer glassware should not be placed in the dishwasher as this can cause scratches and even chips to form. Instead, clean your best glassware by hand using old fashioned soapy water and a cotton cloth. Once you have washed away residue, place glass upside down on a cotton tea towel, this is the method used by bartenders as it limits streaks. If your glassware still requires polishing after this treatment then again, use a pure cotton cloth.
Avoid extreme temperatures as far as your glassware is concerned, water that is too hot or cold can cause cracks.
