Care Instructions: Fine crystal and glassware require the gentlest of care to maintain their brilliance and integrity for years to come. When washing by hand, avoid using scouring pads and/or abrasive detergents. To prevent spotting, combine quarter cup ammonia with a mild lemon detergent. Rinse in clean water and air dry on a rack. 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 1/2 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. Always hand-wash painted glassware.
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 dish-washing 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.
Use & Durability: Fine crystal and glassware can crack or break when subjected to extremes of hot and cold. Before putting very warm food or liquid into a crystal container, we recommend you preheat the crystal with moderately hot tap water. Do not pour cold beverages into a pitcher or bowl that's just been washed with hot water. Likewise, do not wash a crystal piece that's just come out of the refrigerator; allow it to warm to room temperature first.

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.
