I bought these for myself with a new wine decanter that I received as a gift. My dad had an older decanter that had this really big stain on the side so I decided to put this product to the test. It took a little bit of time to sit there and swirl the beads around (about 15 minutes but this was a big, old stain so I am impressed) but the stain came out and the decanter looks like new. There are some reviews complaining about the size of the container versus the picture and while that is true that does not really have any bearing on how effective the product is just don't be expecting a huge case. It is about the size of a quarter around and maybe an inch thick. It can be tricky to get the beads out without losing them but I find that folding a paper towel and holding it over the top and pouring the water through while catching the beads works best. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants a clean decanter and does not mind a little bit of challenge to keep from losing the beads.

Perhaps the stains on my decanter are too tough to tackle in one or two applications, but these beads, while removing some of the stains, still left some behind. Cleaning with the decanter sponge after using the beads helped a bit, and I have confidence that the beads will eventually work to remove all stains from the decanter. Perhaps it'll take a few more tries.

    With patience, these beads removed years of build-up from an old and well-loved decanter. After use, pour water and beads out throgh a sieve to prevent loss.

      Comments about Wine Enthusiast Decanter Cleaning Beads:

      I make wine a home. Friends save bottles for me, but sometime they store them in the garage unrinsed. I used these beads to clean dried wine from the inside of some bottles. They worked great and easier than using a brush.

      The only problem is that if you spill these beads they roll everywhere.

        We have a 25 year old crystal decanter that was quite stained by red wine on the inside. These beads really helped clean it up.

        Recommend using a screened strainer to catch the beads when you are done.

            Handling the cleaning beads so as not to spill any, especially when retrieving them from the decanter, can be tricky. Like the cleaning brush, the beads seem to be useful, but are not the complete cleaning solution -- the bottom of my decanter does not sparkle light the rest of it.

            Comments about Wine Enthusiast Decanter Cleaning Beads:

            I have to admit I was skeptical at first but my decanter had seen better days- it was full of red wine deposits and I had tried everything to get it clean. I ordered the beads, used them, and my decanter looks brand new! The first use did take 15 mins or so but now the subsequent uses only take a couple minutes. If you have a hard to clean decanter this is the product for you!

                These cleaning beads are small but they pack a big punch. I immediately opened the container and poured the beads into my decanter, added a little water, swirled and watch the decanter start to sparkle. Thank you to the previous poster with the idea of pouring the beads onto a paper towel, drying them and using the paper towel to funnel the beads back into their container, worked like a charm.

                  When I first bought the beads I thought they were a novelty that I'd never use. Well I use them every time I decant a bottle or 2. Seriously, if you own the amadeo lyra decanter you have to have these - they are the only way to clean out the bottom. Actually they would be great with any decanter. So buy the beads, $ well spent, you will use them.

                      Completely cleaned the 'scaling' left in our red wine decanter -- we had been using the decanter for about a year with no ability to scrub the bottom - these beads did the trick! It took me two tries to get the decanter completely clean, but now it looks brand new. Very glad I made the purchase!
                      When I'm done cleaning, I simply empty the beads from the decanter into a fine mesh sive, rinse with water, and allow them to air dry. a funnel or a very steady hand will get all the beads back into their container!
