  • Care of your vintage china.
  • It is recommended to wash you vintage china by hand. Prolonged exposure to a dish washer will remove the gilding.
  • Do not use wire cleaning pads, you can soak an item in warm soapy water if you need to remove a stubborn stain.
  • Do not stack tea cups inside each other as this can result in chips happening
  • You can clean a stained teapot with a weak solution of bleach or a steradent or dishwasher tablet in warm water works well. Fill the teapot and leave for a hour.
