Here are some tips to keep your decanter clean and sparkling. The most important rule is to make sure to never leave wine stains in your decanter. Always rinse your decanter with water overnight. For hand-washing, use low-mineral warm water and swirl the water in the decanter. For polishing, keep your decanter above hot water to get steam into the decanter and then clean with a microfiber cloth.
