Drinking glasses

Do you store your drinking glasses upside down or right side up in the cupboard?

Some people store them upside down so any stray dust can't get into them. Others store them right side up so the lip of the glass doesn't pick up any dust or germs from the shelf.

Some people don't store their drinking glasses in a cupboard. How do you store yours?

I store my drinking glasses upside down and this is not because of dust as they are in a closed cupboard, but in case there are cockroaches!
Or indeed any other animals -probably started when I lived in the country on 5 acres and there were a lot of mosquitoes and "things" about there.

Right side up, because the ones we use every day are in use too much to gather much in the way of dust, and with those we seldom use like champagne flutes I don't mind giving them a quick wash before using them.
I always store my drinking glasses right way up. They get used frequently and I don't have lots so they don't stay in the cupboard long before getting used.
Upside down
Right way up, but, now I'm so grossed out about the prospect of cockroaches, I'm starting to think there is no right way to store them!

Right way up.

And I Always wash..... before use.
On a glass' strongest point, its' BASE!
Makes it easier to get out of cupboard as well.
Always just rinse glass, shake it 'dry' before filling with liquid.
Always upside-down. I think it's habit now more than anything, I've done that since childhood.

I store my drinking glasses upside down.....dust stays out and if I haven't dried them properly (but OFCOURSE I always do.....) any little trickles of water don't remain. For folk who may have a resident mouse running around....this keeps mice errr...bits...from getting in too!
Right way up. Dust doesn't get a chance to settle in my cupboard! ;-)
Right way up or they would get chipped or broken.

I used to store them upside down until I read the result of research that it was more hygenic upside up. The study argued that there would be more contamination on the top of glass by having it upside down with the part that touches our mouth touching the shelf. Insects that crawl on the rim of a glass when upside up are likely to fall in, becoming trapped and make it obvious glass is not clean. I have often wondered how dirty their shelves must have been in that study.
I still store mine up, just in case.
I agree , right side up for me also, what is the point of washing them and then placing them rim down, to pick up whatever is on the shelf.

Mine are stored upside down.
Mine are stored upside down for the same reason as Finy. My flutes and wine glasses hang upside down in a special fitting screwed to the top part of the bar hutch and are used a lot but do get a bath now and then just because I've so many they can't all be used.
