Featured Article      Cleaning Decanters



I've done a terrible thing.  I had my eyes corrected with Lasik surgery and now I can see I've been missing cobwebs in my cleaning! ;-)  Actually, it's been a blessing to have my eyes corrected.  I'm so excited to be rid of glasses -- although I have to use reading glasses now to read fine print.  But, no longer having glasses sit on my face is so wonderful.  But, it's true... I have been seeing things that I missed before.  One of those things was a stain in the bottom of a wine decanter.  All I could think was, How long has that been there?

This week finery expert, Jessica Kendrick, explains how to clean fine crystal decanters and an important tip on lead decanters.  It's a "fine point" in cleaning, but it's the little things that count, isn't it?
