after glaring balefully at my housekeeper evry time he breaks a riedel wine glass cleaning it, i managed to do the same - i had to soap it to get some wine stain out, the darned thing slipped and there went another one.
i guess i've had oh about 10 glasses break on me in 2005. one solution of course is to switch to cheaper wine glasses and tolerate the breakage. but, psychological or not, i swear that these glasses indeed enhance aromatics and so i'm reluctant to stop using them.
how DO you clean wine glasses carefully? how do you get the dried red wine stain out of the bottom of the glass? your guests lipstick stain (pox on her) from the rim?
