Try soaking with plain white vinegar, if that doesn't work scrub with a non-abrasive cloth and some baking soda.

Fill the decanter with a cup of cold water add 2 tablespoons of uncooked rice. Put the stoper on and hold it down while shaking the decanter, the rice will scrub the stain off.

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.

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.

How about a denture cleaner tab? White vinegar and backing soda might do the trick too. It will really foam up so watch out. Good luck.
