Hi Mother_2005,
Welcome to Mrs. Clean!

Are the wine glasses made of crystal?

I?m assuming that regardless of the type of glass they are either pitted, which will happen to any crystal that is run through the dishwasher using automatic dishwashing detergent that contain phosphate, and/or your wine glasses have hard water stains on them which are caused from microscopic deposits of minerals such as lime, calcium or magnesium that are contained naturally in tap water.

So the bad news is that once a glass is pitted, it cannot be repaired, but hard water stains made of minerals (that can become further stained with wine) can be helped.

You can purchase a hard water remover and wipe the glasses down to remove the stains, or try a soak in plain white vinegar to remove hard water deposits

I hope that helps.

As I know there is a dish washing liquid that could be able to removed stain from plates and glasses. I have watch from the television commercial. I think it could be able to remove the red wine stain from your glass.

Here are some very steps to get red wine stain off wine glasses...

=> Prepare the sink by placing a rubber mat on the bottom of the sink and a rubber guard on the faucet.

=> Wash the glasses one at a time using a very mild dishwashing detergent and water.

=> Rinse in warm water.

=> Dry each glass by hand immediately after rinsing using a soft, dry dish towel.
