Frequently asked questions:
- My glass (or my decanter, jug or vase) has turned white. How can I get rid of the white stains?
These white marks can be caused by limestone deposits or by alterations to the surface of the crystal. In the first case, we recommend to pour into the glass (decanter, jug, or vase) half a liter of alcohol vinegar mixed with a few handfuls of coarse salt. Shake vigorously before rinsing several times with warm water.
More often than not, using a bathroom limescale remover in a little water is enough, you just rub the trace with a soft sponge. Some limescale removers used for dentures will work as well if the traces of limestone are not too harsh. In the second case, we recommend to contact a Baccarat boutique and their after-sale repair service.
- Can I wash Baccarat crystal glasses in my dishwasher?
Yes, but we recommend setting your dish washer to a fragile tableware program washing at a maximum temperature of 104°F without detergent. Washing at too high a temperature runs the risk of producing a chemical reaction that will stain the crystal and give it a milky appearance.

- I would like to have a gift delivered abroad, how should I proceed?
At the present time, Baccarat has five on line boutiques: in France (www.baccarat.fr), Italy (www.baccarat.it), Germany (www.baccarat.de), the UK (uk.baccarat.com) and the United States (us.baccarat.com). However, you may order products on the sites only if the address of delivery is located in the territory covered by the on line boutique.

For example, if you live in the United States and wish to deliver a gift to France, you can place your order on www.baccarat.fr. Your payment will be in euros, your invoicing address will be in the United States and your delivery address will necessarily be in France. If your country of delivery is not mentioned in the above-listed addresses, we invite you to contact our help service by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
