As you know, maintaining mass-produced, machine-made glassware is a one-step process:
Throw it in the dishwasher and you’re all set.
It’s the one “advantage” to owning cheap glassware.
But keeping your hand-painted, heirloom-quality, luxury glassware looking flawless requires a more delicate and thoughtful approach.
Fortunately, it isn’t difficult.
Just follow these three steps, and you’ll keep your treasures looking bright and beautiful for many years:
1. Hand-wash gently with warm water. Dishwashers are too rough for the hand-painted design
2. Never use bleach, solvents or abrasive cleaners. These will damage the brilliant finish.
3. Dry with a soft, clean cloth for a sparkling shine.
That’s all there is to it.
