Caring for your Bone China

Bone china, despite its delicate appearance, is quite resilient and these items are designed to be used and are (unless otherwise stated) dishwasher safe on a gentle cycle. However, in order to best maintain appearance, wash only on the top shelf and at a lower temperature. Hand washing is recommended, especially for any items which have a large decal image on the inside base – such as our Blue Willow Deconstructed mugs, as this will help protect the design and help to maintain the full vibrancy of the image. Some high performance dishwasher products can sometimes have quite an abrasive affect with repeated use and should not be used. Scouring pads or abrasive washing agents must not be used. Soaking in warm water before washing will remove most stains or hardened on particles.

When storing items, do not to slide them over one another as this may cause tiny scratches in the glaze. With plates, we recommend placing a paper napkin or something similar between each one.
