Care Instructions for Reed & Barton Crystal
Reed & Barton has the distinct advantage of offering beautiful crystal stemware, barware and giftware to enhance the beauty of a tablesetting or home decor. Crystal isn't just for special occasions -- cut crystal is durable and can be used frequently. Reed & Barton crystal is safe to use with food and beverages. Please follow the care guidelines below to maintain the brilliance and integrity of your crystal for years to come:
*Always hand wash your crystal in warm water with a mild liquid detergent, and hand dry with a soft cloth to prevent spotting.
*Do not subject crystal to hot water or to abrasive detergents.
*To prevent chipping and scratching crystal when washing, remove rings, and line the bottom of the sink with a towel or rubber mat.
*Crystal should not be subjected to sudden changes in temperature, which may cause breakage.
*Do not pour cold beverages into a pitcher that's just been washed with warm water.
*To insure that your crystal maintains its brilliance, add some vinegar to the water when hand washing.
*Avoid storing beverages in crystal containers for extended periods of time.
*Change liquid contents of all crystal containers frequently. This will help preserve the product's finish and avoid film build-up.
*To remove stains in vases and decanters, mix a handful of uncooked rice in a solution of warm water, lemon juice and vinegar, and let soak.
*To prevent damage to candleholders, never allow a candle to burn within one inch of the crystal.
*Always use tealights in protective casings for votive candleholders.
*Always store your stemware upright, allowing enough space between the rims to prevent chipping.
