Always wash your new glassware before its first use. When you purchase new glasses, several germs present on its surface. Therefore, it becomes essential to wash before beginning to use. Secondly, wash your glasses individually to avoid any damage. Thirdly, don’t soak your glasses with other glasses to prevent from mechanical shock. Always use the right detergent and warm water to wash your glasses by hand.
