Bone China Care Guide


  • China must not be subjected to extreme changes in temperature or exposed to a naked flame

  • Never pour boiling water into a cold piece of china, first warm the piece and the allow water to go off the boil before pouring into the cup, pot, etc.

  • Plates and serving dishes can be warmed before use in an oven or hostess trolley at a temperature of no more than 38°C/Gas mark 3

  • Fine bone china should not be used for cooking purposes


  • China can be washed in a dishwasher – at a maximum temperature of 60°C – using a dishwasher agent recommended by Caverswall china co ltd.

    • Finish Lemon Liquid Gel

    • Finish Liquid Gel

    • Finish Gel

    • Sun Dishwasher liquid

  • Stubborn stains can be removed by soaking in a mild bleach solution for up to one hour without damaging the china

Hand washing

  • Scouring pads or abrasive washing agents must not be used. Soaking in warm water before washing will remove most stains or hardened on particles

  • Any minute marks caused by metal deposits from cutlery in particular can be removed with tooth power


  • When storing plates, try not to slide them over one another as this may cause tiny scratches in the glaze. The surface used on tableware is hard, however, the front of one plate can be scratched by the back of another so care should be taken when stacking and we recommend that a paper napkin is placed between each plate

  • Cups should not be stored from a cup hook, or stacked, as this may weaken the handles
