RIEDEL 101: Caring for your RIEDEL Crystal Glass

Get the perfect result every time

Don't let care and cleaning stop you from getting pleasure out of your RIEDEL products every day! You've made the investment into greater wine enjoyment, now it's time to use them. See our simple instructions below to care for your RIEDEL Crystal Glass.

Caring for your RIEDEL Crystal Glass:

  • RIEDEL glasses are dishwasher safe
  • To avoid stains: use soft water (low mineral content)
  • To avoid scratches: Avoid glass contact with other glass or metal
  • To remove stains: use white vinegar
  • If available, use stemware rack

If you're washing by hand:

  • Wash the glass under warm water (use detergent and rise the glass carefully)
  • Glass polishing: Use two polishing cloths, never hold the glass by the base to polish the bowl
  • Stem snap: Occurs through mishandling = torque or bend pressure at the stem
  • Storage: Avoid glass storage in kitchen cabinets which have strong aromas that translates into glass

Cleaning your Microfiber Polishing Cloth:

  • Wash at boiling temperature (to kill bacteria) with odourless soap
  • Should be machine washed at min. 170° F/75° C
  • Never use fabric softener when rising your microfiber polishing cloth (avoids grease film on surface)
