Dishwasher suitable Bone China
The surface of Bone China is, in a technical sense, a type of glass and should be treated accordingly.
Please note the following:
Should any film or coating appear, this is usually due to starch deposits which are not always properly removed in the dishwasher. Over time, such deposits can accumulate to form a relatively thin, but extremely resistant, layer which is also encouraged, for example, by:
∙ heavily soiled dishes
∙ hard tap water
∙ wrong dosage of detergent
In general terms, it can be said:
Deposits on glasses and porcelain glazes can only be avoided by an optimal use of water, water softeners, and a cleansing and rinsing agent.
In most cases, these deposits can be removed with a liquid porcelain cleaner, or a ceramic-glass cleaner for ceramic hobs. The glaze will usually remain undamaged. If the film has already formed a very strong bond with the surface, removal can be very difficult, or even impossible in some cases.
As regards dishwasher safety for hard porcelain and bone china, the statement: 'the harder and the less porous the material, the higher the dishwasher resistance', is essentially valid.
