Crystal Care

For those of you that have made a purchase or received a gift of a piece of Criostal na Rinne, Irish crystal, congratulations! With the correct care and some thought-by referring to this guide, you can ensure that your crystal will last for many years to come, perhaps to be passed down as a family heirloom. If you have other brands of crystal such as Waterford Crystal these care instructions may also be suitable to care for your crystal, so be sure to come back and check here on the correct way to care for your crystal in the future.

Crystal contains a large proportion of lead oxide introduced in the manufacturing process in the furnace here in Waterford; up to 33%. This gives the crystal its brilliance and depth. However, this also makes the surface soft and delicate. To maintain the quality and sparkle of your crystal follow our crystal care advice:

Avoid touching your crystal against other objects which may cause marks and nicks.

Keep the crystal pieces standing upright in your cabinet. The rims of the crystal glasses are delicate and placing the glasses upside down puts stress on the rim.

Wash the crystal by hand to avoid damaging it, rather than in a dishwasher. When washing, use a soft dishtowel and mild dish detergent. Gently wipe each crystal piece with the water and soap mixture, rinse then dry.

Use a consistent water temperature when washing your crystal. Temperature changes can cause the crystal to crack.

Use separate lint free cloths for drying and polishing. Steam will make polishing easier, try holding a glass over a steaming (not boiling) pot of water for a few seconds to fog the glass.
