January 12, 2024

In a world where the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and the delicate fragrance of herbal tea holds a special place, our cherished ceramic cups and mugs become more than mere vessels. Are you someone whose day always starts with a warm cup of tea or coffee? Then you can surely relate with us!


In this blog, we will talk about certain tips and tricks for maintaining our favourite ceramic cups, which have always been our silent companions on our journey of flavour, warmth, and daily ritual!

1. Mind the Stains

With time, your favourite ceramic cup might develop stubborn stains from daily use, and serving tea or coffee to guests in a stained cup is something a host should never do. But don’t freak out, we are going to unveil certain tips and tricks that will help you combat these stubborn stains like a pro! Prepare a paste by mixing baking soda and water, then apply it generously on the stains. Scrub it thoroughly, wash it off with water, and wait for the magic to happen!

2. Mindful Storage

When it comes to storing your ceramic teacups or mugs, you should always opt for a designated space in your kitchen cupboard to avoid overcrowding and potential clashes. You can also think of placing soft, non-abrasive liners between your cups to prevent scratching.

3. Embrace the Coaster Culture

Coasters and ceramic cups are the two sides of the same coin! If you want to protect your tabletops and the base of your mugs, you should lay your hands on these game-changers. Coasters not only add a touch of style to your coffee table but also protect your ceramic drinkware from potential scratches and unwanted stains.

4. Say No to Chemicals

Your cherished ceramicware deserves to be pampered and not harmed by toxic cleaning agents. It’s always a good idea to keep them away from chemical-based cleaning agents and scouring pads. Handle them with care and opt for non-abrasive cleaning materials, if you want to keep your favourite ceramic cups in a pristine condition for an extended period of time.


5. Temperature Tolerance

Extreme temperature changes can cause harm to your favourite ceramicware! You should keep them away from abrupt temperature shifts, from hot to cold and vice versa. Allow them to adjust gradually to reduce the risk of thermal shock. This small adjustment can go a long way in preserving the structural integrity of your ceramic companions.
