Preserving your porcelain tableware

Did you just receive some beautiful porcelain tableware set? If not, did you buy an elegant set of porcelain dishes through an online store? Now that you have a beautiful dining set, the next challenge is to preserve it perfectly and enjoy if for a very long period. With that said, there are several important things that you should and should not do with porcelain tableware. In this blog, we explain those tips so that you can preserve your beautiful set of porcelain tableware for years to come.


Cleaning your porcelain tableware 

If you intend to clean the stains or get rid of dried food from the dishes, you should soak them in warm soapy water for several minutes. Then, you should make sure to use a light-duty scrubbing sponge and gently wipe away any stuck-on food. But please make sure that you do not scrub aggressively or use scouring pads. Also, don’t use heavy-duty scrubbers or harsh cleansers. If the stain is still hard and stubborn to remove, soak it for a longer time. 


When it comes to tea stains, be sure to use four cups of water with about two tablespoons of chlorine bleach. Then, let the teacups soak for a few minutes, and then rinse them well. 


However, if you have scrape marks that are left by cutlery such as forks and knives, be sure to use a gentle metal cleaner.


It will be OK to use the dishwasher for your porcelain dinnerware. However, you should make sure that you use the fine china cycle only on low heat. In addition to that, you should not place the items too close together. Those items should not touch each other during the cycle. Also, you should be sure to use a quality detergent as well.


What should you avoid? 

In general, it is always best to handle your porcelain tableware with the utmost care. So many scratches, chips, cracks, and even breaks can be avoided if you take your time and handle them with care when serving, using, washing, and storing your tableware. Be careful.


Also, you should never use your porcelain dinnerware to reheat food. It is not a good idea to put it in the microwave or on the stove. It is true that this pottery can handle high temperatures. However, you will still risk cracks and deformities.


It is important to be careful not to create a temperature shock when you handle your porcelain dinnerware. If you will be serving very hot food, be sure to warm the plates with tap water first. Applying hot food on cool porcelain dishes may cause cracks and breaks.


Well, porcelain pottery is unique and exceptional. So, we believe that it should only be used for special occasions. There is less risk for damage if you do not use your porcelain tableware frequently. A couple of choice holiday meals are good enough to use your special china.
