All Royal Touch London flatware can be conveniently hand washed. If for some reason, it’s not possible to wash any of your silverware directly after use, then wipe away remnants of food with a paper towel and rinse in hot water to prevent prolonged contact with potentially acidic food and drink substances that may damage the silver. Eggs as well as caviar are notably foods not to be eaten from Silver. Foods containing heavy levels of salt, acid or sulphide can damage the finish.
