For items used for food or drinks, please clean the inside before use. A silver cloth (not included) may be used to gently wipe away light surface marks such as fingerprints. For more stubborn marks and tarnishing, please use a good quality silver polish avoiding any contact with wood, Formica, enamel or crystal parts. Apply to the area with cotton wool working in a circular motion until the tarnish has lifted from the surface. Wash off all traces of the cleaner with warm soapy water, then rinse with clean water and dry with a soft lint-free cloth.
