Our Bone China has been designed for everyday use and is tested to withstand normal handling. Set out below are our care instructions
Do not mix plates with metal utensils to avoid metal marking or damaging the glaze surface. Avoid the use of any abrasive materials.
Where possible use rubber / plastic mats on stainless steel surfaces. Avoid storing plates on top of one another, as this may scratch the surface, where possible store with dividers or napkins between. Never slide plates out from a stack - but lift instead.
To reduce the possibility of thermal shock, do not take china from a very cold area and place it on a hot surface, for example out of a freezer and straight to an oven. China must not be used for cooking.
Staining and Tanning
The most difficult stains to remove from tableware are tea, coffee tanning, acidic and burnt on sauces. To avoid this happening try and get these items washed as quickly as possible. If staining, particularly on cups becomes an issue use only a good quality de-tanning solution. Do not use abrasive materials. Deposits may also occur in areas of "hard" water, most stains can be removed with a solution of vinegar and water.
