We understand the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Work, meetings, school runs, cooking dinner, helping the kids with homework - who has time to hand wash glassware? When we created our glasses, we wanted to make sure they could handle the dishwasher. And guess what? They passed the test! Not only have we crafted our glassware with lead-free crystal that will keep your glasses from turning cloudy, but the intricate patterns of our pieces are engraved by hand, and the colours of our rose and smoky shade glasses are blown into the glass - meaning that the colour and detailed designs last even after numerous cycles in the dishwasher. However longevity really is key, so here are a few things you can do to make your glasses last for even longer.
Store your glassware correctly
Make sure you place your glasses carefully so that they aren’t touching each other to avoid scratches. We don’t think they should be stacked due to the fine rims. We would advise storing them in a cabinet with doors if possible, so they don’t get dusty or effected by sunlight or humidity. Given that the rim is the most delicate part of the glass, avoid storing them upside down to prevent chipping or breakage.
Dry and polish your glasses
While air drying is perfectly acceptable after the dishwasher, if you do have a little more time on your hands, consider polishing your glasses for a beautifully shiny result. Just make sure to use a linen or lint-free microfibre cloth to avoid any scratches on the glass.
Avoid extreme temperatures
Sudden changes in temperature can lead to glass breakage. Steer away from pouring hot liquids into a cold glass, and vice versa.
Get rid of stubborn water spots
Stubborn water spots on your glasses that just won’t budge? Try cleaning them using warm water with lemon juice and white vinegar. Not only does this help remove persistent spots, but it also leaves your glasses extra sparkly.
So there you have it - some simple, handy tips to keep your glasses looking shiny and in top shape for years to come.
