Taking good care of your belongings makes good sense. It prolongs their lifespan, which is good for
your finances as well as the planet. Follow our care guide and keep your things beautiful and usable
for many years to come.
Dinnerware - stoneware & porcelain
Stoneware and porcelain are sturdy materials burned at high temperatures. The higher the temperatures, the sturdier it gets – and
our stoneware and porcelain are burned at very high temperatures above 1200° C.
As long as you take certain precautions, our stoneware and porcelain are dishwasher, oven and microwave safe and can also go in
the freezer. But never put normal stoneware and porcelain into a preheated oven or directly from a warm oven onto a cool tabletop.
Big temperature differences might cause it to crack and break, which is why it should always be heated up and cooled down slowly.
Glasses – sodaglasses
Our ordinary glasses are made of soda glass, which is easy to care for. Just follow our care guide – and make sure not to drop
them on the floor – and your glasses will stay beautiful and usable for many years. You can easily wash your soda glasses together
with dishes and cutlery, as long as you choose a short cycle with temperatures below 55° C. Apart from that, we recommend that
you follow our care guide for crystal glasses.

Cutlery - stainless steel
All our cutleries are made from stainless steel. Stainless steel is a very robust material, which is easy to care for. You should,
however, always follow our care guide, since stainless steel should maybe rather be called rust-resistant steel, because all steel –
also stainless steel – can rust, if it is not treated correctly. Cutlery should always be rinsed or washed immediately after use, since
acid from certain foods can damage it – but never let it soak. If certain measures are taken, all our cutleries are dishwasher safe.
Make sure to use dishwasher detergent and rinse aid from the same brand and to dose it correctly – it must not contain chlorine.
Always place the knives in a separate dishwasher basket, since the blades are made from less rust resistant steel than the rest of
the cutlery. Do not overload the dishwasher, as cutlery needs proper space in order to be thoroughly washed and rinsed. As soon
as the wash is completed, you should open the dishwasher door to let the moisture out.
Rust is tiny rust particles that are being swirled around in the dishwasher during wash cycles and thereby end up on cutlery and
other things made from steel.
Placemats – leather & silicone
Always remove spilled foods and fluids immediately, since they can cause stains. The placemats should always be cleaned after
use, which can easily be done with a damp cloth and some mild washing-up liquid. Never put your place mats in the dishwasher
and avoid contact with warm things such as pots and pans, folding as well as prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. Now and then
the place mats can be rolled “the opposite” way to make sure that they keep their completely flat shape.
Teak wood is an extremely solid material, and, if treated properly, the hard wood is almost impossible to wear out. Never put your
wooden cutting board or other wood products in the dishwasher. Wash it instead by hand, dry it thoroughly with a dishtowel,
and let it air dry before putting it away. To keep the wood from drying out, it should regularly be treated with a suitable and food
approved oil. Unpleasant odors are easily removed with salt and lemon – just sprinkle a tablespoon of salt on your cutting board
and rub it around with half a lemon.

Let your new linen textiles soak for about 24 hours before the first wash. Coloured linen should be soaked in cold water, while
naturally coloured linen should be soaked in warm water. Always choose a gentle cycle with a short and gentle spin, and make sure
to use a washing powder or liquid without chlorine or optical brightener. Never put linen in the dryer, but smooth and stretch it after
each wash and hang it to dry - avoid strong sunlight. The wrinkled look is part of the charm of linen, and it is best to avoid ironing
and mangling. If you choose to iron or mangle your linen textiles anyway, make sure to do it at low temperatures before they are
completely dry. Be aware that pure linen might shrink 5-7%.
