Bone china can be washed in a dishwasher - at a maximum temperature of 60°C. However, where precious metals are used (gold or platinum) ware should be washed by hand and not used in the microwave.
Scouring pads or abrasive washing agents must not be used. Soaking in warm water before washing will remove most stains or hardened on particles. Stubborn stains can be removed by soaking in a mild bleach solution for up to one hour without damaging the china.
When storing plates, try not to slide them over one another as this may cause tiny scratches in the glaze. We recommend a paper napkin is placed between each plate.
