Cleaning & Care
Silver is a natural antimicrobial, antifungal, and antibacterial metal that also contains anti-inflammatory agents. As a result, a quick rinse with warm water between feeds is sufficient to clean the cups.
The cups can tarnish over time due to the natural oxidisation process that occurs in silver, however it is still safe and effective to use. To remove the tarnish, make a paste using a mix of bicarbonate of soda (one teaspoon) with a few drops of water. Rub the paste over the cups, rinse and pat dry.
Although not required, the cups can be cleaned using mild base soap (recommended handwash soap).
Do not use any harsh detergents, bleach-based agents, sterilising tablets or hard scourers to clean the cups.

This is a natural occurrence when 925 silver is in touch with humidity, natural oils from the body and the quality of air in the atmosphere. The product is safe for mum and baby and still effective.
