Tip: Washing Delicate Crystal or China

When washing fine china and crystal, generally you should wash them by hand, do not put them in the dishwasher. Place a soft terry towel on the bottom of the sink. Wear rubber gloves to give you a better grip so your best tableware won't accidentally slip and break.
