Rinse a few times with hot, soapy water, and agitate as much as your glasses will handle.

Soaking doesn't help much, because even if you release the oil, the glasses are still sitting in the oil. Heat and soap will loosen the oil, and agitating and rinsing will help drain the oil. (I personally used a 2 pound container with a cover, put in glasses, soap, and hot water, and shook. Emptied and repeated a few times.)

Start with this, I have also found denture cleaning tablets to work well, after many uses the glass can get permanently stained and is worth replacing as they tend to weaken and shatter after that point.

Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

I've done this and then clean each one off with a paper towel to get off any remaining grease.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Ultrasonic
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%
