Default whats the best soap to clean pint glass with?

i know not to wash the glasses in the dishwasher and to hand wash them instead. but what should i use for a soap to wash my glasses so it doesn't hurt head retention? am i alright with just using dish soap and hand washing?

I just regular dish soap and make sure I rinse them well. Works well for me.

If you want billions of microscopic imperfections marring your beer drinking experience then go ahead and use regular dish soap. If you want to actually enjoy your beer then you need this. http://www.wineenthusiast.com/stem-shine-wine-glass-cleaner-%28set-of-powder-and-liquid%29.asp?wfvar=varc













Um, yeah I'm kidding. I hope craft beer doesn't get to this point.

I keep my glasses relatively clean-- that is, don't let them sit overnight with beer dregs in them. I use hot water, rinse well, and drip-dry.

If, for some reason, I don't clean the glasses immediately, I use a little baking soda in hot water with a suction-cup glass-cleaning brush in the sink. I will sometimes use chlorine bleach, but I typically don't keep that in the house.

If they are really dirty (almost never, unless a house guest puts something disgusting in a beer glass, like milk, or some other substance unfit for human adult consumption), I use PBW.

pretty much exactly what I do, except for when i pass out and forget to rinse my glass out beforehand, at which point i just let it soak with hot soapy water for a bit, then rinse out

I keep a spray bottle of water and vinegar near the sink. I rinse the glass and then spray the glass with the vinegar water. That seems to help get rid of the lacing/foam residue. Then a soft scrub with some dish soap and rinse well.

In all honesty, if you go with a more eco-friendly non chlorine dishwasher detergent and have soft water you can put them in the dishwasher and they will survive the experience. Of course I rarely do this. LOL

I clean my glassware with OxyClean and a good thorough rinse.

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
