Handmade Products is a beautiful and unique way to decorate your home, but it can be susceptible to damage. As with any other piece of art, it’s important to take care of your handmade pottery so it lasts longer than a day or two. Here are some tips on how best to keep your handmade pottery in good condition:
Wash your pieces in warm, soapy water.
- Wash your pieces in warm, soapy water.
- Use a soft cloth to wipe down the piece and avoid using too much soap or too much water. If you need to rinse off the piece before drying it, just do so gently; otherwise, don’t worry about getting rid of all the soap residue on your pottery.
Rinse them well and dry them completely.
- Rinse them well and dry them completely.
Don’t use a towel, nor do you want to use a damp towel or even a dry paper towel for this purpose. The best way to clean your pottery is not by scrubbing it with water but instead by using something like a soft cloth (a microfiber cloth works best). You can also use an old toothbrush or other small cleaning tool if you have one on hand—just make sure it’s not too abrasive!
Use minimal heat on the pieces.
When drying your pottery, you should use a heat gun or hair dryer. This will help to speed up the drying process and keep your pieces from cracking. If you don’t have a heat gun or hairdryer, try putting them in front of an open window with the sun shining through it for several minutes before placing it on top of your piece.
Do not expose them to sunlight or heat above 200 degrees F.
Do not expose your handmade pottery to sunlight or heat above 200 degrees F. This can cause the glaze to fade and crack, as well as weaken it. Additionally, if you are storing your pieces in a hot location for any length of time (such as when out of reach from windows), it may be necessary for you to protect them with plastic bags or bubble wrap.
Do not use alkaline products like ammonia or detergent when cleaning.
- Do not use alkaline products like ammonia or detergent when cleaning. These may cause the surface to be permanently damaged, which is why we recommend using mild soap and a soft cloth for cleaning your pottery piece.
- Do not use harsh scrubbing pads on your handmade polish pots. If you have tried this method before and it did not work for you, then give up! You should always try gentler methods first before resorting to harsh chemicals like bleach or other types of cleaners that could potentially damage your pottery piece over time.
These are a few tips to help ensure your handmade pottery lasts longer than a day or two
- Use a soft cloth to clean your ceramic products. This is the best way to keep your handmade pottery from cracking or chipping, because it’s less likely to scratch against other materials than an abrasive sponge or paper towel.
- Follow this advice for treating stains:
- Use a mild detergent (like dish soap), but don’t use too much water; just enough so that it cleans off easily without leaving lint behind on the surface of the piece.
- Don’t let any heat touch your piece; whether it’s dry heat from using an iron or moistened with water will damage its finish over time if left untreated.
- Do not expose any pieces outdoors unless they are properly sealed with paint first! Even if you live in sunny Southern California like me, wintertime can still be cold enough inside my house where extreme temperatures can cause cracks in some pieces before springtime comes around again next year–and then there’ll be another bout of freezing temperatures before summer rolls around again…
As you can see, caring for your handmade pottery is simple and easy. If you follow these tips, your pieces will last longer and look better than ever!
