Our glass is a world leader, mainly thanks to the highest quality raw materials, lead-free glassware and hand-crafted workmanship. That’s why we can stand behind our products 100%. But there are a few practices that, if followed, will keep you happy for a long time.
And these are:
- Wash gently. What does that mean? You can wash your glasses in the dishwasher without fear of them turning gray, but you should always use the gentle program and make sure that the glass cannot be mechanically damaged in the dishwasher – that is, that it stands properly, does not come into contact with other dishes and that the rinsing arms do not get caught on it. It is not recommended to clean thick-walled vessels such as carafes, vases and jugs in the dishwasher. For a perfect wash, it is enough to soak them in warm water with a little detergent; for hard-to-reach dirt, our dirt cleaner is the right thing for you.
- Avoid large temperature fluctuations. A rapid change of heat (warm water) and cold (cold water, ice) is not good for the glass. Therefore, try not to expose glasses or jugs to temperature fluctuations.
- Avoid bad polishing. Before you polish your glass, watch this short instructional video that will give you all the information you need.
Decorated glass care
- Wash sparingly.
Products decorated with gold do not belong in the dishwasher. Always wash them by hand and a gentle
Detergent. Also beware of scrubbing too much.
- Avoid large temperature fluctuations.
Rapid changes between hot (warm water) and cold (cold water, ice) are bad for the glass.
Try not to expose glasses, decanters or pitchers to temperature fluctuations.
- Store glassware dry.
The reaction of the silver contained in the gold deposit, together with weathering effects, can
lead to gradual corrosion of the gold decor. To avoid corrosion, store gold
decorated glass in a completely dry environment.
- Polish properly.
If your gold decorated product is corroded, you can restore the original
Quality by carefully polishing it with a suitable product. For perfect polishing
we recommend SITOL, which is used for polishing glass, decorated glass and metals. Polishing must be done gently and only on the areas affected by corrosion. Aggressive polishing of the of the entire surface can damage the gold coating.
And that’s it! If you follow these three principles, we believe that you will enjoy a long time with glass from Květná.
