CdA care instructions: Dishwashers
As a general rule, stemmed glasses, tumblers and jugs should be placed upside down in the dishwasher’s upper basket. In order to avoid knocks and breakages, ensure that items are secure and well spaced and, most importantly, that the stems are at a safe distance from the spray arm. Caution! Some types of metal react with washing detergents and may start to oxidise during the cycle. To protect your crystalware from yellowish stains, wash it separately from silver, copper or aluminium items.ProgrammesCrystal is a delicate material, sensitive to sudden changes in temperature and knocks. For this reason – and especially if it is only lightly soiled – crystal should be washed on your machine’s short cycle and at a moderate temperature. Water will be cooler, the spray less powerful and the cycle shorter.Cleaning productsIt is recommended that you use a liquid or gel detergent suitable for decorated or delicate items (as indicated on the back of the pack) rather than traditional washing powder. If you do prefer to continue using powder, you need to ensure that you always use the correct amount, since powders are highly concentrated. It is not advised that you use 3-in-1 tablets, which contain salt (with the exception of new generation tablets which contain an anti-corrosion agent) as these require your machine to be completely empty of salt.
Are dishwashers and crystalware a match made in heaven?
