Cutlery care

Colourful cutlery requires a little extra care to keep it looking its best. But don’t worry, it’s very straightforward and largely common sense!

1. Our matte/satin finishes are handwash only.

2. You should ensure you use PH neutral liquid when handwashing, as acidic or alkali additives can cause the colour coating of the cutlery to fade more quickly.

*PLEASE NOTE*: many standard household cleaning brands veer on the alkaline side of the PH scale. Reasonably priced, PH neutral variants are available from leading grocery and high street retailers.

3. Avoid prolonged contact with acidic based food substances.

4. Do not use heavy duty or heavily chlorinated powders, liquids or gels. 

5. Never soak your cutlery for long periods or overnight.

6. Avoid the use of abrasive cloths.

7. We recommend the cutlery is thoroughly dried with a tea towel after handwashing, to minimise water marks. 

8. Watermarks can usually be fixed with a quick splash under cold water and a good dry with a soft tea towel (or other soft cloth).
