For washing in a Dishwasher - Stack carefully so that items are not touching. Do not overload. Always use good quality wash and rinse aids, a gel or liquid is advisable. Make sure that the water temperature is correct and the machine is regularly serviced and in good order.
Recommended dishwasher temperature for china is maximum 65⁰ C.
