Tea Towel Product Care Information

So you’ve quite recently purchased a set of brand new tea towels! You might ask yourself what is the most proficient and hygienic method for keeping them fresh and clean. There are two issues when it comes to tea towels. First, when you’re wiping clean dishes, you’re not only removing excess water, but also any soapy remnants that can eventually cause bacteria to grow within the fibres. Second, a standard tea towel can absorb roughly 20 times its weight without feeling wet, which means that even if we think a kitchen towel is dry, it could actually be harbouring damp, which leads to mildew, mould, and so on.Through daily use, they are presented to a wide range of bacteria and if not washed appropriately could cause a health hazard. There are a few things to bear in mind at the top of the priority list to guarantee your new tea towels are kept clean, smell free and capable of drying dishes.

New tea towels ought to be washed before using for the first time to increase absorbency. This will continue enhancing over a few washes. It’s essential to continue washing your tea towels consistently. In the event that you have a good selection you are probably not going to run out and will have the capacity to change them day by day, while as yet being less expensive and preferred for nature over paper towels.

Try not to leave wet, dirty, wet dish cloth and tea towels in a clothing basket before washing. They could create mould and microscopic organisms and begin to smell. It is obviously better to enable them to dry naturally before dropping them in the clothing bin or washing them toward the beginning of the day.

Our 100% premium cotton tea towels can easily be machine washed at 30°C or 40°C. If you’ve used your kitchen towels to wipe up spillages on work surfaces, always opt for a detergent that is focused on removing stains and will remove any small marks or discolouration, leaving your tea towels looking like new. For heavier stains, don’t be afraid to pre-treat with a stain remover first.

We recommend that all tea towels are separated into light or dark colours.

In the event that your tea towels still have a lingering smell subsequent to washing you could take a stab at including some white vinegar or baking soda to your wash alongside the cleanser. The best technique is to pause the cycle part way through and enable the clothing to drench for no less than a hour or even overnight. Once the towels have had a good soak, restart the cycle and enable it to finish.

When hand washing, do not place the detergent directly onto the laundry, but ensure liquids are dispersed and powders completely dissolved before immersing the items to be washed.

Tea towels ought to in a perfect world be line dried with the printed side facing away from the sun to minimise colour fading. Line drying is ideal for leaving your laundry outdoor-fresh and almost crease-free…but using a tumble dryer at the correct setting also gives good results. When using a tumble dryer, do not over dry laundry and remove it promptly to reduce creasing. Smooth out and reshape everything, paying particular attention to borders and hems on tea towels, then fold carefully.

In between uses, tea towels ought to be hung up, maybe on a towel rail over your radiator or on the oven handle, to allow them to dry and keep the air circulating instead of left folded on your surfaces.

Bear in mind you should keep a different hand towel for drying hands, not your cook’s garment or a tea towel.

Washing and drying fabrics correctly will help eliminate creasing and make ironing easier. Natural fibres crease more when new, but with time the fabric softens and this will reduce. Always steam iron your tea towels whilst still slightly damp, on the reverse, and store folded in a clean, dry kitchen cupboard where they can be accessed easily. In the event that fabrics have become bone-dry, we advise re-damping with a water spray before.

All natural fibres will shrink. However, washing or drying fabrics at excessively hot temperatures will cause more shrinkage than usual.

All our tea towels are heat-cured through huge gas dryers ensuring excellent colour-fastness.

Melamine Chopping Boards Product Care Information

Melamine is a thermosetting plastic that is strong, lightweight and hard with the look and feel of a ceramic product. More specifically, it’s an organic industrial compound created by combining melamine resin with strengthening materials. That means it can stand up to the rigours of everyday use.

Our melamine chopping boards are easy to clean with a damp cloth. To avoid staining, make sure to remove any remaining food or sauce from your melamine chopping board immediately after use. Don’t let it dry out.

Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners, steel wool, or metal scouring pads on melamine products. These abrasive products will dull and scratch the surface of your melamine products. For safe scrubbing, use a light-duty white scrubbing pad.

Do not use chlorine bleach on melamine products.

Melamine is hard and smooth and can withstand some fairly warm temperatures, but it does absorb heat and will soften if it gets too hot. In general, melamine products are not designed to withstand temperatures that exceed 95°C and should not be submerged in boiling water or placed in the oven. Also, be sure to avoid exposure to hot objects or prolonged exposure to boiling water. As mentioned above, melamine can withstand high temperatures, but it should not be heated while in contact with food. For this reason, use in the microwave oven and conventional oven is not recommended.

Do not use melamine products in a conventional oven.

Do not use melamine products in a microwave oven.

Strong and highly durable, using a production process which utilises melamine compounds.  A melamine resin on the surface provides resistance to stains and temperatures of up to 95 degrees Celsius making them dishwasher safe.

If your dishwasher is an older model with an exposed heating element – usually at the bottom – your plastics could be at risk of warping if they are washed on the bottom shelf, therefore, it’s a good idea to wash plastics along with the cups and glasses on the top shelf. However, be aware that the dishwasher can fade your melamine colours somewhat over time.

Melamine is highly break and scratch resistant, but it is NOT 100% unbreakable, it can be scratched and broken. Melamine is to a great degree hard to break, however there have been occurrences of chipping around the edges of melamine when it’s handled very roughly. Fortunately melamine won’t smash if dropped, and is by and large very sturdy. Furthermore, melamine is generally impervious to scratch marks from forks, blades, and different utensils.

Do not use serrated knives on melamine products.

Keep the design faultless by using the underside of the chopping board when chopping.
