We often get the question: "How should I clean the Zalto glasses? Can I use the dishwasher?" And yes, they can. In fact, we recommend washing Zalto glasses in the dishwasher, as most breakages occur when applying manual pressure during handwashing. Here is a small guide on how to properly wash your Zalto glasses, so you can continue to enjoy the enhanced wine experience.
We recommend washing your Zalto glasses in the dishwasher.
Use a gentle glass program with a maximum temperature of 50 degrees Celsius.
Ensure that your dishwasher uses soft water or has a water softening feature to minimize mineral deposits and spots.
Place the glasses securely in the dishwasher, ensuring they do not touch other glasses or metal objects to prevent scratches.
After the dishwasher cycle is complete, leave the glasses in the machine for about 10-15 minutes to allow them to steam dry.
If there are any spots or stains, you can use clear vinegar to remove them.
For a sparkling finish, consider using a soft polishing cloth to buff the glasses.
If available, using a specialized glass rack or holder in the dishwasher can provide optimal support and protection for your Zalto glasses.
By following these guidelines, you can safely and effectively clean your Zalto glasses in the dishwasher, maintaining their quality and ensuring an enjoyable wine-tasting experience.
If the glasses need to be washed by hand:
Wash the glasses gently under warm water using dishwashing liquid, and rinse them thoroughly.
Polishing Zalto glasses: Use two soft polishing cloths, one in each hand. Remember never to hold the glass by the base while polishing the bowl.
It is crucial not to twist or apply pressure to the glass.
Storage: Avoid storing the glasses in kitchen cabinets with strong aromas that could transfer to the glasses - every detail matters!
When handwashing your Zalto glasses, handle them with care to avoid any accidental damage. Proper cleaning and storage will help preserve their quality and ensure an exceptional wine-tasting experience.
Washing Microfiber Polishing Cloth:
Wash the cloth at boiling temperature (to kill bacteria) using unscented soap.
It should be washed at a minimum of 75 °C (167 °F).
Never use fabric softener during rinsing as it can leave residue on the cloth's surface, and avoid any grease stains. By following these steps, you should achieve the best results and have sparkling and shining Zalto glasses. However, please note that we cannot guarantee outcomes as all Zalto glasses are unique and handcrafted. We wish you a wonderful experience.
