Johnson Brothers Plates – Hand Wash or Dishwasher?
Johnson Brother plates and dinnerware are sometimes hard to find, especially collectibles. You really don’t want to damage them as much as possible. Most people who own one don’t read wash labels very much. This is a big No-No. Even if it says “dishwasher safe,” you shouldn’t limit your knowledge to just that. Learning as much as you can about how to properly clean your precious dishes is imperative to preserving them for as long as possible.
Getting started with the proper ways to clean your Johnson Brothers plate is a bit confusing. Many people swear by the effectiveness of the traditional hand washing technique, while some claim that modern dishwashers do an equally excellent job with less hassle and hassle. You really have to know how to clean them because fine plates like these are hard to come by these days. To solve your problem, all Johnson Brothers collections are dishwasher safe. This means that they are quite durable and will not fade or scratch easily. This is due to its semi-porcelain components called “white granite”. They are hard and durable pieces to which classic and tasteful designs are added. With proper care and use, you won’t have to change dishes for a long time.
For regular designs and collections, you can always opt for dishwashers. They are more efficient and practical. You don’t need to get your hands dirty, well in this case, wet and clean. Since you will be using them regularly, you can afford to leave them in the care of the machines. A little helpful tip though: you should avoid stacking the dishes while in the washing machine and always practice proper spacing on the dishes. Do not put them too close together to avoid scratches and bumps.
For collectible and rare pieces like the designs worn by the English royal family, I suggest hand washing. The Old Britain Castle collections are very rare and very expensive. You should never leave them in the care of machines. Although they are made sustainable, I strongly believe in prevention first. Washing them with human hands is still the best in my thinking because you can gauge how much pressure to apply.
The bottom line here is that it’s all up to you as the consumer. Practice what is comfortable for you. Follow the manufacturer’s manual if only as a guide. They are there to help you keep your dishes looking new and in great shape.
