How do I clean a red wine stain left in the bottom of a crystal glass?

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.
