Best way to clean red wine stains from Wine Glasses

My red wine glasses have stains. What's the best way to clean them?

UPDATE 9/16

I also noticed that lipstick is not coming off in the dishwasher.

With the hard water here I end up cleaning with LimeAway. Usually rinse the glasses with water and put them in the dishwasher. But getting lipstick off seems to be tougher. BTW, I don't drink alone.

@kaykay The San Luis Obispo wines I got for my birthday were very much appreciated, and shared with a very fine lady ;-)

Do you wash with soap or are you one of the "water" people?

You could try to soak them in water with vinegar.

mayer, first of all you should rinse your glasses immediately after using them ;-) don't be like me and leave them till the next morning....:-) Anyhow I found the best way of cleaning anything that stains my glasses as well as my ceramic coffee mugs (heavy coffee drinker) I use the cheapest denture cleaning tablet (dollar store brand)and let them dissolve inside the decanter or even the coffeepot. Hope this helps and makes sense.

If it's stubborn try putting uncooked rice in the bottom of the glass with a little water and then swill round and round. the rice won't scratch the glass but it will take off the dried grapes. or you can make a paste from lemon juice and sodium bicarbonate.

or you could make sure you drink all your wine and stop wasting those last little drops! :-)

Sad to see so many ppl judging others negatively. Stop it okay? Vinegar works great. Soak the glasses in a solution of water and vinegar. No specific ratio and dry them with any towel. Even paper towel will rub off the film.
