Washing your wine glasses - delicate glassware and no residual smells?

I'd like to hear from everyone with all-too-breakable glassware, like Riedel Sommelier or similar, about how you wash your wine glasses. The two concerns being avoiding breakage, and avoiding odors left in the glass from sour dish towels, detergents, etc. Mr. MM refuses to use our Riedel because he's broken too many, and even I (have broken just one in many years of use) shy away on some nights because I just don't want to deal with cleaning them.

I'm perfectly capable of cleaning my glasses, without breakage and stink free, for special occasions. But I really would like to hear tips to make it easier, so I am more likely to use the good stuff on a weeknight.
