How to Care for Your Enamel Mug
Outdoorsmen and women love enamelware for its durability and ease of cleaning. Thatʼs not to say enamel mugs wonʼt chip or dent (they are made of steel and ceramic after all), but following a few simple steps will ensure that your mug withstands your adventurous lifestyle.
1. Avoid the Microwave.
Cook with enamelware all you want, but avoid the microwave. This may seem like a no-brainer, but not everyone knows that beneath the ceramic coating is metal.
2. Hand Wash.
Yes, your mug is dishwasher safe. But because it may come into contact with other dishes or hard surfaces, it is best to wash by hand with mild dish soap.
3. Remove Stains.
Wine, coffee, or tea may discolor your mug even after washing. A lemon juice / baking soda mixture left to soak in your mug for 10-15 minutes will do the trick!
4. Dry after Washing.
After washing, dry your mug off with a dishcloth, as any exposed metal may corrode.
5. Pack Securely.
Enamelware is prone to chipping, so pack only near soft items in your bag. When chips happen, apply cooking oil to exposed area. Discontinue use if chips are found on the lip or inside the cup.
