Fill a washing-up tub with cold water, add to this a generous splash of vinegar.

Fill a third bowl with cold water for rinsing.

Step 3: Wash

Wash each glass carefully one at a time in the hot soapy water. Pay special attention to the rim and stem, this is where the majority of the smudges and stains will be.

Dip each glass in the rinse bowl to remove any soap residue.

Step 5: Vinegar solution

Lastly submerge the glass in the vinegar and water solution. This will give it an extra sparkle. As it is a weak solution, the smell and flavour of the vinegar will evaporate as it dries.
