Whether at a restaurant or at home, eating from dinner plates that have spots, stains or grime marks isn’t appeasing, no matter how good the food may be. However, at home, you still have the option to clean crockery sets without leaving any marks behind. The trick is to know what solution to use for the right crockery, in such a way that will make your dishes shine.
To help you get started, here are some tips that you could use to keep your crockery sets clean and shiny -
- Use Hot Water: This is one of the most effective tips to clean crockery sets, without breaking them. Hot water effectively removes dirt and grease from your glassware, a lot better than cold water could.
- Use Baking Soda: There are a lot of ways you can try to clean delicate crockery sets. Try this for effective results - Use the solution of water and baking soda on stains which will come off effortlessly, and without damaging the crockery.
- Warm Milk For Porcelain: Porcelain items are quite delicate kitchenware which can develop hairline cracks, if mishandled while washing. Try soaking the pots overnight in warm milk. The next day, with mild detergent, wash the porcelain crockery carefully. Don’t forget to wash your hands afterwards.
- Salt And Vinegar: The stains in pots can lead you to become harsh on them, eventually leading them to break. Keeping a 50:50 proportion, make a solution of vinegar and salt. Soak your pots in this solution for a few minutes and you’ll be amazed at how easily the shine comes back to those pots and dishes.
- Cleaning Silver Cutlery: If you have a problem with stains due to egg, salt, vinegar, fruit juices, etc. on any silver plates and glasses, just try keeping them in mild lukewarm water mixed with a soap solution or powder. Then, remove the silverware from the solution and wash them using hot water.
It’s always better if you rinse your dishes immediately after use. Not only does doing so make it easier to clean, but also saves precious time you would spend trying to wipe off those smudges from the edges of your cutlery. You can always follow the above tips to ensure that your crockery remains clean and shiny, without the unnecessary scrubbing or elbow greasing.
