Care Guide for Underglaze Decoration Plates

Underglaze decoration plates are a beautiful addition to any table setting. Their intricate designs and vibrant colors can elevate the dining experience. However, to ensure their longevity and maintain their beauty, it's essential to care for them properly. This guide provides recommendations for the care and maintenance of underglaze decoration plates that are dishwasher and microwave safe.

1. Handling:

- Always handle the plates with clean, dry hands.
- Avoid stacking too many plates on top of each other to prevent chipping or cracking.

2. Cleaning:

- Dishwasher Safe:

These plates are designed to withstand the rigors of a dishwasher. However, to ensure they remain in top condition:
- Place them securely in the dishwasher so they don't move around during the cycle.
- Use a mild detergent that's free from abrasive chemicals.
- Opt for a gentle cycle if available.
- Ensure there's enough space between each plate to prevent them from knocking against each other.

- Hand Washing:

If you choose to hand wash:
- Use lukewarm water and a soft sponge.
- Avoid using abrasive scrubbers or steel wool as they can scratch the surface.
- Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth to prevent water spots.

3. Microwave Use:

- These plates are microwave safe, but always ensure there's food on the plate when microwaving. Microwaving an empty plate can cause it to crack.
- Avoid overheating. If a plate becomes too hot to touch, let it cool before handling.
- Do not place a cold plate directly into a hot microwave. Allow it to come to room temperature first.

4. Storage:

- Store the plates in a cool, dry place.
- If stacking, consider placing a soft cloth or paper towel between each plate to prevent scratching.
- Avoid placing heavy items on top of the plates.

5. Avoiding Damage:

- Do not use the plates as a cutting surface.
- Avoid exposing the plates to extreme temperature changes, such as moving them directly from the freezer to the microwave.
- If a plate gets chipped or cracked, retire it from use to prevent further damage or potential injury.

6. Regular Inspection:

- Periodically inspect the plates for any signs of wear or damage.

With proper care and attention, your underglaze decoration plates will remain a beautiful and functional part of your cafe for years to come. Always prioritize safety and handle them with the love and care they deserve.
