CARING FOR VINTAGE & ANTIQUE CHINA: If you would like to clean your Royal Dover fine English bone china, please don’t use harsh chemicals and never use bleach or run through the dishwasher. You’ll want to use warm, (not hot), water and mild, citrus-free detergents to clean. Hand wash pieces individually and line your sink with a plastic wash tub to avoid chipping. To remove tea stains from your tea cup, try using undiluted household white vinegar or a denture cleaning tablet and water as a soak. Fill the cup to just below the inner design and allow to sit for several hours or overnight, until any tea stains have been removed. You should never scrub antique or vintage China with anything abrasive!
