  1. Wipe the plates

    Use a paper towel to wipe excess food from the plates before washing, or run the plates under warm water to push the food into the garbage disposal. Do not scrape the plates with aluminum utensils, which can create gray lines on the dishes.

  2. Fill a sink with warm water

    After plugging the sink, add warm water and a squirt of dish soap. If the water feels too hot for your hands, it could cause cracks in the finish on the china. Place only a few dishes at a time in the sink to avoid scraping them against one another.

  3. Clean and rinse

    Wash the dishes with a soft rag or sponge. Do not use a metal pad. Rinse with warm water and place in a drainer, keeping the pieces from touching one another.

  4. Treat stubborn stains

    China cups often discolor from coffee or tea. Swish white vinegar around the inside of a cup. Add a bit of salt or baking soda to a damp rag and use the cloth to clean discolored areas.
