Beware the Dishwasher!
We all come across vintage dishware that has lost its color. The bright red Pyrex dish is now a dull orange ... or the vivid cartoon character glass has faded to pastels.
Blame it on hot water and harsh dishwasher detergents! If a glass or ceramic piece has the design or color applied to its surface, take the time to wash it by hand.
VM Team members are always looking for ways to take care of our precious vintage objects. Share your methods for cleaning, stain removal, storage, protection, etc. Submit your tips to ThreeOldKeys and we'll use them in future Tuesday Tips.
