Bar Glasses FAQs

How to clean bar glasses?

Wash the glasses one at a time with the brush, rinse thoroughly, sanitise, and dry upside down. Use a mild detergent, glass cleaner, and sanitiser to prevent film, spots, and germs. Soak cloudy glasses in vinegar, scrub stubborn stains with baking soda, rinse with a vinegar-water solution, and polish with a microfibre cloth.

How to store glasses in a bar?

Here are some tips for storing glasses in a bar:

  • Organise glasses by size and stack them upside down.
  • Use a glass rack to maximise space and prevent breakage.
  • Avoid overcrowding and keep glasses in a dry, cool place.
  • Label shelves or cabinets for easy access.
  • Add padding and slip mats to prevent glasses from clanking together.
