How to Clean Porcelain


Porcelain ware will never look its best if it's streaked and stained. Here's how to do basic maintenance.

Things You'll Need

  • Mild Detergent
  • Sponges
  • Bristle Brushes
  • Hand wash painted or decorated porcelain surfaces with a very mild dish detergent. Rinse in warm water; hand dry with a soft towel.

  • Use an all-purpose kitchen or bathroom cleaner for plain, more resilient surfaces such as toilets and sinks. Take a scrub brush to stains; rinse with warm water.

  • Use a very mild abrasive cleaner and scrub sponge as a last resort for particularly persistent stains, scrubbing only the affected area; rinse with warm water.

Tips & Warnings

  • Avoid abrasive cleaners if possible, as they can dull the surface of porcelain.
  • Decorated porcelain should not be washed in a dishwasher.
