We use plastic for almost everything except wine. Those glasses are wrapped in "bubble wrap" with elastic band to keep them on. (Our little luxury).

We have non plastic dishes and glassware that is rated for the microwave/convection oven that is just in the cupboards with nothing extra done to them. Been that way going across the country several times. We also use wide mouth mason jars for most drinks.
As for the bottles of liquor? Well that is just put in the cupboard too with nothing extra.

I heard a tip for wine glass storage: slip each one into a sock.

We wrap our liquor bottles and glass ware in hand towels. Everything else is Corelle and plastic.

The DW is a wine snob, laughed at the idea of plastic wine glasses. That is, until some friends invited us over to their site for 'happy hour'.

They had some thick hard plastic wine glasses, both in red & white wine style, that had a really nice look and feel and kept everything at the proper temps.

That was it, she was sold!!

We have a bunch of them now, in the m/h, at home for out on the patio and around the pool, and up at our place at the lake too.

Keeping the wine glasses in your sock sure makes the wine taste funny.....Oh, you mean clean socks! Whatever happened to Dixie Cups? The boss and I try to use as much disposable plates, items as we can to eliminate washing dishes.

Plastic wine glasses and pilsner glasses. I'll have to try that 'wine bottle in a sock' trick.
