How To Care For Your Pewter

Pewter is a perfect metal for everyday use and with the minimum of care it can retain its wonderful finish .

Pewter should be NEVER be washed in a dishwasher as the chemicals in the detergent will react with the pewter and ruin the finish. Therefore, we recommend washing Pewter by hand in hot soapy water and dried with a soft cloth. When drying your Pewter, keep the direction of the cloth in a straight up and down motion, never in circles as Pewter is a soft metal and will easily scratch with a hard cloth.
