Care & Maintenance Tips
Melamine Crockery Care & Maintenance Tips
(For Melamine Crockery, Tableware & Drinkware)
Follow these simple care and maintenance instructions (tips) to make your KIP® products serve you for a long time…
How to care for your KIP® Products:
- DO NOT soak melamine dishes in boiling water. This will cause the items to lose their shine.
- DO NOT let the crockery soak for long periods (several hours) in dirty water as this may stain the items.
- DO NOT let food and/or drinks remain for long periods on/in the crockery as this will be harder to wash and cause staining (see below for stain removal. It is best to wash the crockery shortly after use.
- When washing, use warm or cold water. DO NOT use boiling water
- When washing, DO NOT use abrasive detergents (like VIM powder or harsh liquids). Normal household dishwashing liquid detergents work well.
- When washing, DO NOT use abrasive agents (like steel-wool). Use soft sponges. At most you can use the green scouring sponges without pressing too hard when washing.
- Melamine dishes can be washed in dishwashers using normal dishwasher detergents provided that the machine is set on the “air-dry” setting (as opposed to “heat dry”).
- The best way to dry melamine crockery is by standing them up in drying racks and letting them air-dry or towel dry.
- Although melamine items have break-resistant properties, they are not Break-Proof. This means that if handled too roughly or dropped hard, they can crack and/or break. So, do handle them with some amount of care.
- 10. Melamine crockery, is not suitable for use in microwave ovens. Microwaves may create bubbles and/or cracks due to overheating the material.
- Sharp and serrated knives may scratch the surface of melamine items if pressed too hard while cutting food on them.
- To remove food and/or drink stains you may soak all melamine items in a bucket full of cold (room temperature) water with a 2% bleach (Sodium Hypochlorite) concentration (i.e. 20ml per litre of water). Let the items soak for 10 minutes then wash with dishwashing detergent and rinse.
We hope you enjoy your KIP® Melamine products for a long time.
