Clean vases and decanters by filling them half-full with moderately hot water, a small amount of mild detergent, two tablespoons of white vinegar or ammonia and half cup uncooked rice. Swirl the rice around for a few minutes to remove residue. Rinse well with moderately hot water and air dry, upside down, on a rack. Remove more stubborn stains by filling the container with warm water and dropping in a denture-cleaning tablet; let it sit until the stain disappears. We do not recommend washing fine crystal or glassware in an automatic dishwasher as overtime crystal may lose brilliance.
However, if crystal and glassware must be machine washed, please exercise these precautions. Do not machine wash metal-accented crystal. Use your dishwasher's "fine crystal and china" setting. For dishwashers without this setting, use the "air-dry only" cycle. After the cycle is complete, open the door to air dry. Use only half the recommended amount of cleanser, as even the mildest brands of automatic dishwashing detergent are abrasive. Ideally, lower the top dishwasher rack to accommodate the height of your crystal. Space your crystal stemware on the rack so the pieces do not touch one another, since vibration during the washing and rinsing cycles can chip or crack the crystal.
Founded by William and George Penrose, Waterford was established in the heart of the Irish harbor town of Waterford in 1783. Today, Waterford is known worldwide for creating crystal and glass drink ware, crystal gifts and home accessories of unsurpassed beauty and quality. Waterford is a perfect choice for wedding gifts and business gifts. Waterford, a thousand year old city, nestling on the sunny banks of the beautiful river Suir, was the favored city of several English monarchs who visited regularly and endowed the city with it's famous Coat of Arms. Renowned for it's beautiful examples of Georgian architecture and Viking Lanes, the city boasts a strong heritage for art and culture. This inspired the Penrose family, in 1783, to create the world's finest crystal - Waterford, favored by the rich and famous across two continents, old Europe and the emerging New World, America.

A name synonymous with elegance and luxury, Waterford was founded in 1783 by George and William Penrose in the ancient Viking city of Waterford. From the start, the principle that would guide the company for more than 200 years was simple: handcraft crystal "as fine as any in Europe...in the most elegant style."
The Penrose's knew the secret to mixing just the right minerals and glass to produce crystal with beautiful and mysterious qualities. When tapped, it sang sweetly. When touched, it felt warm and soft. The magnificent pieces crafted in Waterford's early period set the standards now recognized as the hallmarks of Waterford Crystal.
Today, Waterford is the world's top producer of fine crystal, and continues to be the brand of choice for the most elegant of table settings and luxury lifestyle accoutrement.
