Often times, our fine china has some special tie to us. Fine china pieces are more special than the other plates and teacups you own, not only because of their lovely details and designs, but because of their emotional significance to us. Many get their first set of china when they get married. I personally, have a set that was handed down to me from my great-grandmother. Sure, its currently under the watchful eye of my mother until she finally feels I’m responsible enough to have it (or in other words, I will have to pry it from her cold, dead hands). Whatever the reason behind it’s significance, we want to preserve our china and have it looking good for a long time. Well, Lenox, of the Lenox Charleston and Lenox Windsong fame, has provided a few more tips for china owners on how to preserve it’s beauty. Here are three good ones:
-Wash your china with warm, not hot water. Especially if the china is decorated with metal.
-To get rid of stains, clean them with a small dab of baking soda, salt, cream of tartar or toothpaste and rub the area with a soft cloth.
-Hand dry rather than air dry to prevent water spots.
