Maintenance of Glass Tea Cups

Proper maintenance of glass tea cups is important to ensure their longevity and to preserve the flavor and aroma of the tea. Here are some tips for maintaining glass tea cups:

  1. Clean cups thoroughly after each use: Rinse the cups with warm water to remove any leftover tea, and then wash them with a mild detergent and a soft sponge or cloth. Avoid using abrasive sponges or brushes, which can scratch the surface of the glass and cause it to become cloudy.
  2. Dry cups completely: After washing, dry the cups with a lint-free towel or let them air dry upside down to prevent water spots and mold from forming.
  3. Store cups properly: Store glass tea cups in a clean, dry cabinet or on a shelf with enough space to avoid them from bumping into each other. Avoid stacking cups as this may cause them to chip or break.
  4. Handle cups with care: When handling glass tea cups, hold them by the handle or the base rather than the rim, as this can cause the glass to break or weaken over time.
  5. Avoid extreme temperatures: Do not expose glass tea cups to extreme temperatures, such as sudden changes from hot to cold or vice versa, as this can cause the glass to crack or break.
  6. Use proper cleaning products: Use mild detergents and avoid harsh chemicals, such as bleach or ammonia, as they can damage the glass and cause it to become cloudy.
  7. Remove stains with vinegar: To remove tea stains from the glass, soak the cups in a mixture of equal parts white vinegar and warm water for about 30 minutes, and then wash them as usual.

By following these tips, you can ensure that your glass tea cups remain clean and in good condition for years to come, and that you enjoy the full flavor and aroma of your tea.
