• Before using, rinse the inside with water, then bring to a boil and rinse again.
• Use a teapot mat when you put the teapot with the boiling water on the table. Without a mat, this may causes the table top get burnt due to the heat of the pot.
• Wash with a soft sponge. Do not use detergent, cleanser or steel sponge to wash it as this may cause more rust. Just rinse the inside with water. Dry out the inside of the pot before storing it.
