Try putting some vinegar in the bottom and allow it to soak for awhile, shake well (top covered of course - LOL) and wash. If that doesn't work put in a teaspoon or two of salt and some ice cubes and swish, cover and shake it.

Fill the decanter with a cup of cold water add 2 tablespoons of uncooked rice. Put the stopper on and hold it down while shaking the decanter, the rice will scrub the stain off. (03/28/2006)
RE: Wine Stains on Crystal
Dampen the crystal with water or window cleaner. Sprinkle some Whiting* on the stain; enough to make a poultice. Rub gently with a soft, non-abrasive, cotton cloth. It should remove the stain(s) almost instantly. Not only will the stain be removed, but the whiting will polish your crystal as new! *Whiting can be found in the paint dept. and will not scratch any enameled or glass surface. (03/01/2008)
