【How to care】
・When washing, rinse lacquerware with tepid water.
・For oil stains, wash it gently with diluted neutral detergent and soft sponge.
・When grain of rice is stuck in a bowl, pour hot water into it and leave it for about ten minutes. Wash it with a soft sponge and it will be removed.
・After washing, wipe the water off with a soft dishcloth or gauze. A silk and nylon cloth will damage the surface.
