Everyday Silvercare

Silverware every day, what a brilliant idea! Here are a few tips to take care of your silverware on a daily basis.

Dishwasher Tips

Good to know: It’s best to avoid putting your crystal glasses in the dishwasher at the same time as your cutlery, as that may tarnish the silver. Also, do not put stainless steel cutlery or knives manufactured before 1968 in the dishwasher. 


We advise you use powder detergent and to regroup all your knives in the same dedicated cutlery basket of your dishwasher with their blades pointing downwards and their handles pointing upwards. If you have a mix of stainless steel and sterling silver cutlery, make sure to always wash them separately.

Do you love doing the dishes?

If you can’t resist the temptation to wash your cutlery by hand, do so gently! Always use a soft sponge and mild dishwashing liquid.


Avoid any dishwashing liquid that contains chlorine, citric acid or lemon scent. Make sure to never use the scratchy side of the sponge and avoid any contact with bleach and rubber gloves.


 After washing, if you abhor the sight of traces of water, wipe immediately with a soft cloth.
