Duravidro Glassware

Tips & Tricks

DuraVidro polycarbonate glassware can be cleaned in exactly the same way as ordinary drinking glasses. They can be hand-washed, washed in an ordinary dishwasher or in an industrial dishwasher. If machine washed, the long stem range must be placed in top rack for best results.

You can also boil the most of DuraVidro products, as they withstand temperatures from -18º and up to +120º Celsius. (depending on the material. See material sheet to make sure or contact us for more information). Material Clarification.

Never use abrasives, steel wool, razor blades or other sharp utensils for cleaning. There are no special demands as to the washing-up liquid (but see “best result” below), so just use your normal brand.

When hand-washing the products, use a soft sponge, dishwashing brush or a microfiber cloth.

To remove soap stains, rinse in clean water and dry remaining drops of water with a damp soft sponge or cloth. Do not use benzine, alcohol, ester or organic solvents for cleaning Polycarbonate products.


The following may discolour the unbreakable glasses or make them cloudy in the long run:

  • Washing at more than 85 degrees in a long period of time. Best temperature is between 60°C and 80°C.
  • Lack of osmosis system
  • Overdose of rinse aid
  • Use of soap with metal protection
  • Use of incorrect wash tray for the glasses (do not use the wash tray for flatware or plates)
  • Milk products / drinks can leave a lime residue if the glass is not washed in hot soapy water shortly after use
  • Use of anise-based drinks (such as Pernod, Ricard, Raki or ouzo).
