Do you ever find yourself staring at your dishwasher and wondering if wine glasses should go in? If you’re not sure, don’t worry. There are a lot of different opinions on the subject. Some people say wine glasses should NEVER go in the dishwasher because they’ll get damaged and break.
Others say wine glasses can go in the dishwasher as long as they are wrapped up in cloth to protect them from breaking. In this blog post, we will explore all the different arguments for and against putting wine glasses in the dishwasher.
You CAN Put Wine Glasses in the Dishwasher
If you have an automatic dishwasher, chances are that you can put wine glasses in it. You need to wrap them up in aluminum foil, however. Aluminum foil is a safe, effective way to protect wine glasses. If you’re thinking, “but how will I know if I’ve wrapped the bottle correctly?” don’t worry.
You won’t have to worry about that because this dishwasher dishwasher gadget will wrap up the bottle with precision. How It Works Here’s the contraption that cleans all of your wine glasses. You take this dishwasher device out of the dishwasher and place the wine glass inside. The foil will cover the entire glass in a protective layer. Then you turn on the dishwasher and you’ll see water flow through the system.
Wine glasses are dishwasher safe
Most glass bottles can go in the dishwasher, as long as they’re not in the rack and have the metal stem attached. So it’s not like washing a wine glass by itself in a rack. They should only go in the rack if they are actually clean and being dried and placed into a rack. To avoid this, wrap them up in cloth or parchment paper or a scotch towel to protect them.
Wine glasses get damaged in the dishwasher So some people think a glass dishwasher container is more likely to crack or shatter than when they get them dirty and dry them in the oven. But some people swear that wine glasses will get damaged in the dishwasher because they can pop out of the rack when they’re dirty and break. So that’s one argument against putting a wine glass in the dishwasher.
The Difference Between Dishwasher Safe and Dishwasher Safe with Cloth
There are two different types of wine glasses. The “Dishwasher Safe” designation means that the wine glass will not get damaged when it is put in the dishwasher. The “Dishwasher Safe with Cloth” designation means that the wine glass will get damaged when it is put in the dishwasher. As you can imagine, the two labels can be confusing.
The two labels should not be confused with each other. Let’s try to clarify the difference between the two labels. If the glass is broken, you can easily toss it in the trash and replace it. If the glass is simply stained, you can wash the stain away. If the glass gets loose and falls, you can simply cut it off with a utility knife. This is why the words “Dishwasher Safe” and “Dishwasher Safe with Cloth” are completely unrelated.
The Benefits of Putting Wine Glasses in the Dishwasher
Let’s say that you only have a small amount of wine glasses that you put in the dishwasher. In this case, it’s probably a good idea to put your wine glasses in the dishwasher, because you want to be able to wash them at least once a week. Plus, if you don’t wash your glasses by hand, they will oxidize and get dingy faster.
As we’ll see later, you can also sanitize wine glasses by putting them in the dishwasher after using them. Some people say that putting wine glasses in the dishwasher can damage them, so they should never go in the dishwasher. Others say that as long as they are wrapped up in cloth, wine glasses should be fine to go in the dishwasher.

You SHOULDN’T Put Wine Glasses in the Dishwasher
So if you’re at the beginning of this article, you’re probably wondering if wine glasses can go in the dishwasher. The short answer is…probably not. First of all, wine glasses are the most fragile wine glass you’ll ever use in your lifetime. If you put them in the dishwasher and you aren’t careful, they’ll shatter into several pieces. These pieces can be in the dishwasher, your dish, or your hands.
The other problem is you’ll be spending a lot of time washing the dishes after you’ve put the wine glasses in the dishwasher. Most people only run their dishwasher once a week and when they do, they wash only a few plates and glasses at a time. If you run your dishwasher like this, you’ll end up having to wash the same few glasses repeatedly until they are completely clean.
Wine glasses will break or get damaged
Some people suggest that wine glasses should never go in the dishwasher because glass breaks easily. Wine glasses are made of glass, so if you put them in the dishwasher, they’ll likely be broken. But, glass is actually harder to break than plastic, ceramic, or glass-enameled cast iron cookware. I have a glass 8 cup bowl that I used for holding soy sauce. It lasted longer than an 8 cup cast iron dutch oven. But a glass 8 cup wine glass is going to shatter after a few rounds of the dishwasher.
In contrast, a glass 8 cup cast iron dutch oven will survive for a few million years. You don’t want to use the dishwasher because it will mess up the taste of the wine But maybe the real reason you don’t want to wash wine glasses in the dishwasher is that you don’t want to dirty up your dishwasher.
Why you shouldn’t put wine glasses in the dishwasher
Wine glasses can get delicate over time and as a result, they could potentially break if they are put in the dishwasher. However, they are not broken every time a glass goes in the dishwasher. Many wine glass manufacturers recommend that wine glasses should be stored upside down. This means that if you put a glass in the dishwasher with the stem on top, it will break.
In reality, some wines don’t break when a glass goes into the dishwasher. This is because many manufacturers use treated wine glasses. However, many people still believe that glass can be fragile and shatter easily. To make the glass stronger, they wrap them in cloth. As a result, wine glasses that are coated in coating film are the most resistant to breaking.
So if you’re like us, and want to ensure your wine glasses never end up with a broken base, there are a few things you can do to make sure they don’t. Don’t store your glasses in a brown paper bag. Not only does it look tacky, but if you put the dishwashing detergent in the bag, the smell of the detergent can actually damage your glasses.
If you want to leave the glasses in the paper bag until you’re ready to do your dishes, wrap them in another cloth and place that in the bag. If you do want to put your wine glasses in the dishwasher, just be sure to rinse them off first, and put the wine glasses in the cloth and bag that you wrapped them in.
