Avoid an abrasive cloth, opt for hand wash to maintain premium cutlery

The beauty of your #cutlery comes from the fine material it is moulded from and these sensitive metals often react with free radicals of oxygen. Avoid abrasive cloth for drying the cutlery and use white vinegar to maintain lustre, suggest experts.

avoid-abrasive-cloth-opt-for-hand-wash
Bhavna Goenka, CEO at Memoire and Filippo Ricci, Creative Director of Stefano Ricci, have suggested ways:

* Keep an eye on your washing habits, as abrasive practices can reduce the lifespan of your stainless steel cutlery. Unnecessarily drawn-out storage in a damp dishwasher is the main agent for rust, so remove and hand-dry.

* Abrasive cloth can leave marks and dents on the delicate frame hence only the softest cloth should be used. Ensure that you dry your cutlery with a tea towel rather than leave it to air-dry.
