Every household prefers to buy porcelain dinner sets and present their food in style to their loved ones. But it is also necessary to take good care of your dinnerware so that it looks brand new over the years. When it comes to porcelain dishes, handwashing is the safest option. If you are planning to wash in a dishwasher, use only the liquid detergents used in a dishwasher and make sure not to overload. Note that plates and other dinnerware with gold/platinum rims should only be hand washed.
