Every piece of Silsal’s porcelain dinnerware is a work of art – something to be loved and handed down. We think these precious sets deserve to last for generations; so caring for your products will help keep them in pristine condition.
Below are our tips to help you keep your Silsal sets as wonderful as the day you ordered it:
- Using a plastic dishwashing bowl in the sink helps cushion the porcelain dinnerware while washing.
- Use lukewarm water and wash one or two dishes at a time to avoid overloading.
- Opt for a mild liquid dish detergent and non-abrasive cleaning tool, such as a dishcloth or soft sponge.
- Don’t allow pieces to soak for an extended period of time.
- Thoroughly dry the dishes with a soft dishtowel.
- While Silsal dinner sets are dishwasher safe, we suggest using liquid-based detergents, rather than powder or table detergent, which are particle free.
- If your dishwasher has a porcelain setting use it, and avoid the hot drying cycle as porcelain is sensitive to changes in temperature.
- Load the dishwasher with care an ensure none of the porcelain dinnerware touches another piece as water jets often knock or push pieces around during the cycle, which over time, may result in chipping or scratches.
- After a wash cycle, allow all the items to cool on a side before storing them away.
- Place something soft, such as a napkin or paper towel, between plates or bowls during storage to keep them scratch and scuff free.
- Don’t store porcelain in an excessively cold or warm area of your home.
- Avoid extreme temperatures! Don’t freeze your dinner set and keep it away from the oven. Porcelain is sensitive to extreme heat changes, which may cause them to crack.
- Never expose porcelain items to a direct flame.
- Do not allow acidic foods to remain on your dishes and wash them as soon as possible.
- Avoid leaving food on your porcelain plates overnight.
- Marks on porcelain caused by kitchen utensils or stainless steel can be removed using vinegar or a premium stainless steel cleaner.
- Rust marks from dishwasher prongs can usually be removed with an all purpose household cleaner or cream of tartar.
- For tea and coffee stains, use a specialized stain remover.
