Drinkware, also known as Beverageware, makes up the containers that hold beverages or liquid food for both drinking and consumption. Drinkware is designed to keep drinks and liquids either hot or cold for an extended time frame. Some types of drinkware can be used every day while others may only be used on special occasions. Drinkware can be portable allowing drinks to be transported to exterior settings or be stored in kitchen environments. Drinkware differs in form and shape depending on the liquids it is meant to hold. Drinkware is created from different materials allowing it to be used in different types of settings.
Sanitize used drinkware by washing the glasses by hand with water and using a small amount of soap. Then air-dry the drinkware on a dish mat by placing the glass downwards. If you don’t like to wash by hand you can also use a dishwasher to clean the drinkware.
The amount of drinking glasses you should have depends on the type of beverages you drink and how often you drink. It is recommended to at least have a glass for each place setting. You can buy glasses individually or in sets that typically have 4 to 16 glasses.
Drinking glasses tend to sometimes get cloudy because they are washed with hard water. Hard water leaves behind a cloudy residue and is less effective than soft water at rinsing dish soap or dirty water. Drinking glasses also get cloudy by etching that is caused by hot water or water that is too soft.
