Too tired to clean up after a rousing dinner party? Make things easy on yourself and take one simple step to streamline the cleaning process come morning.
Red wine is notorious for staining everything from carpets to teeth to — you guessed it — wineglasses. Rather than necessitate a long scrubbing process (which might damage your crystal), simply pour a splash of water in all spent wine stems and leave them be until the morning after. Thanks to water's solvent properties, any residual red wine sediment will dissolve while you sleep off the nights excesses and make the arduous chore of cleaning up the next morning fly by.
