Cleaning Your Tableware


The first step in maintaining your tableware is ensuring it is properly cleaned after each use. Different materials require different cleaning methods to preserve their appearance and integrity.

When it comes to cutlery, such as our Matte Cutlery Set, hand washing is also recommended. Use warm water and mild soap, then dry immediately with a soft towel to prevent tarnishing and watermarks. For stainless steel cutlery, occasional polishing can help maintain its shine.

Storing Your Tableware

Proper storage is crucial for protecting your tableware from damage and wear. Store your dishes and bowls in a dry, cool place where they won’t be exposed to extreme temperatures or humidity.

For delicate items, consider using soft separators or felt pads between stacked plates to prevent scratching. Our Picnic Tableware Set comes with convenient storage options to keep your pieces safe and organized, making it easy to transport and store.

Cutlery should be stored in a dry drawer or a cutlery organizer to keep pieces separated and prevent them from rubbing against each other. This not only keeps your cutlery in good condition but also makes it easier to find the pieces you need.


Handling with Care

Handling your tableware with care is essential to avoid accidental chips, cracks, and other damage. When setting the table or clearing dishes, be gentle and mindful of how you place and stack your tableware.

Avoid clinking or banging pieces together, and never use your tableware for purposes other than what they are designed for. For example, do not use your fine china as a cutting board or your cutlery as a tool for tasks other than dining.

Special Care for Special Pieces

Certain tableware items may require special care due to their unique materials or finishes. For example, items with metallic accents or intricate designs should be handled with extra care to preserve their decorative elements.

For our Marble Glazes Ceramic Party Tableware Set, avoid exposing them to sudden temperature changes, which can cause thermal shock and lead to cracks. Always allow hot items to cool gradually before washing them.


Regular Maintenance

Regular maintenance can keep your tableware looking its best. Periodically check for any signs of wear or damage and address them promptly to prevent further deterioration. For example, if you notice any tarnish on your cutlery, use a non-abrasive polish to restore its shine.

For ceramic and porcelain pieces, a gentle scrub with baking soda can help remove stubborn stains without damaging the surface. Regularly inspecting and caring for your tableware ensures it remains in top condition for years to come.


Caring for your tableware is essential for preserving its beauty and functionality. By following these simple tips and tricks, you can extend the lifespan of your favorite pieces and continue to enjoy them for many meals to come. At Bake Everything, we offer a wide range of stylish and durable tableware designed to enhance your dining experience.
