Please rinse with warm water and mild dishwashing liquid prior to your first-time use.
After each use, promptly wash off (using a soft sponge) residues and food stains as soon as you can.
While we have customers who wash this chopstick in dishwashers with no issues, we cannot guarantee that the dishwasher would not affect the exterior finishes as there are various factors involved (eg. type of dishwasher, dishwasher detergent, etc.). As such, it is recommended to only handwash the chopsticks so as to preserve the exterior as well as possible.
When washing, use mild dishwashing liquid only and avoid citrus-scented, chlorine-based and anti-limescale detergents. Do not use abrasive sponges or scrubs.
After each wash, dry with a soft towel to prevent water marks, discoloration and film buildup.
When storing your chopsticks, place them in a dry and well-ventilated place and keep your chopsticks separately from the knives to avoid scratches on the surface.
Enjoy your chopsticks!
