Across Hollywood screens, we’ve seen crystal wine glasses hanging upside down on hanging shelves. Is this a marketing gimmick or is there really an invisible value behind it? Let True Wine answer this question for you!
How to keep wine glasses clean and bright like new at home
Store in a closed cabinet
If it is not possible to invest in an inverted glass cabinet, instead of choosing an open wine rack, we can store our wine glasses in a closed cabinet. Although this method still leaves a little dust on the sides of the glass, wipe it off with a clean cloth and you will still retain the transparency of the expensive crystal glass.
- Place the glass upright to avoid chipping the rim. The wall of a wine glass is the most fragile part of the glass, so it is important to place as little weight as possible on the delicate rim of the crystal. Carefully place the flat bottom of the glass on the shelf, making sure not to bump any other glasses. This also prevents moisture from being trapped inside, such as leftover water when cleaning the glass.
- Keep a space of more than 1 cm between each glass to prevent chipping. Most importantly make sure to provide enough space for the wine glasses so they don’t bump into each other.
Using the mount
Install a rack under the counter to save space. The under-counter mount allows you to store your glasses upside down without putting pressure on the rim. This helps prevent dirt from sticking to the inside of the bowl and affecting your later drinking experience.
However, since the wine glasses will be on display, they are often used in wine bars to enhance aesthetics. So wine glasses can collect dust on the outside of the bowl, body and base. Please rinse with water and dry with a clean towel before pouring wine!
Wood or metal should be the preferred materials for under-cabinet racks.
What is the effect of hanging wine glasses upside down?
The upside down wine glasses on the hangers are not purely for decorative purposes. This helps to prevent the wine glasses from getting dust on the sides of the glass. However, turning a wine glass upside down is not as simple as putting the mouth of the glass on a certain surface.
Do you know? Because the rim is fragile and easily damaged, wine glasses and flutes for Champagne should be placed face down. The smartest way to deal with this problem here is the wine glass racks. If you are planning to store your favorite crystal wine glass upside down, you need to invest a decent amount of money in a rack or design a nice little home bar for your kitchen that allows the wine glass to be hung from the base, far away. cabinet floor, thus protected from chipping.
