If you’re finally getting rid of holiday flowers from your vases and realizing that there’s still a bit of red wine residue in your decanters, here’s an easy trick to get your glassware clean even when you can’t reach the bottom.
Simply fill the vessel halfway with warm water, add a few drops of dishwashing soap, two tablespoons of white vinegar, and one cup of uncooked rice. Swirl the mixture around for a couple of minutes (the rice will scrub the sides of the vase for you), then rinse and air dry. You can also use crushed up eggshells, but you’ll need to be sure you get the vase or decanter thoroughly rinsed with hot water to avoid any illness.
