If you're cleaning crystal wine glasses, then the best way is to handwash it. Make sure you don't handle the glass by its stem. Instead, handle it by the bowl, cleaning it with a gentle soap. An alternative is to use vinegar or lemon juice. Place your crystal on a thick towel to dry.

If you find that you can't remove the stains, then baking powder and a lemon juice paste should do the trick. Gently rub it over the crystal and then wash. You can also use rice for tougher stains, by adding water and swishing it gently inside the glass.

If you need to clean cut crystal, then try soap, lemon juice or vinegar, and apply with a toothbrush. If you don't have any tools to clean your crystal with, then try shaping a wire coat hanger and attaching cloths to it.

Always cover your hands when drying the crystal to prevent fingermarks.
