The Proper Way To Store Your Fine China

Most of you may know that there are just some special plates and cups that appear only on the most special occasions. Your momma’, grandma, aunts and most of the other women you know, all have the tendency to obsess about the pristine beauty of their treasured china.


However, if you don’t know anything about china or how to store it so that it can be safe and last for a very long time, then you need to pay attention to this post. It’s going to offer you some very valuable tips that are necessary for properly storing away your fine china. Check them out.


  • You need to carefully wrap everything up individually, to protect your china, no matter how big or small it is. Use bubble wrap or butcher paper to get the job done. Forget about using newspaper for wrapping your china. Although it may be really easy to get, it’s not the most effect material for protecting your china and it may even bleed some of the ink onto your precious dinnerware.


  • Remember to store your bowls or plates on their sides when storing them away, because the edges of the china plates are much stronger than the centers.


  • When storing your china away in boxes or storage containers, it’s a good idea to separate items with cardboard dividers, so that you can protect them from knocking against each other and chipping/cracking/breaking.


  • Make sure that you label the storage container or cardboard you put your china in, with “FRAGILE” or some other word or phrase that can indicate that you need to be careful with what’s in there.


  • Try to get medium or small plastic bins to store your heavier items, so that they fit snugly and don’t move around and get damaged.


  • Make the most of self-storage for your china, so that you are sure that they won’t be disturbed until you are ready to use them.
