Your Ultimate Guide to Ceramic Coffee Mug Care: Handling Your Mugs with Love

Hello coffee lovers and mug enthusiasts!


Is there anything better than cradling a warm mug between your hands, filled with your favorite brew? Whether you're sipping on a steaming cup of morning joe or unwinding with some chamomile tea, there's a special bond we all share with our favorite mugs.

At Pretty Little Lili, we understand the value of a cherished ceramic mug. So, whether you’ve opted for our snug 11oz or our generous 15oz size, here are some essential tips to ensure you enjoy every sip while keeping your mugs in tip-top shape!

  1. Be Gentle with Cleaning: Always hand wash your ceramic mugs with mild dish soap and warm water. Avoid using abrasive scrubbers as they can leave scratches.
  2. Avoid Extreme Temperature Changes: Never pour boiling water directly into your mug. It's best to let the water sit for a minute or two after boiling before pouring it in. This will prevent any potential cracking from sudden temperature changes.
  3. Safe Storage: Store your mugs in a dry, safe place where they won't easily get bumped or chipped. Using a mug tree? Make sure it’s stable!
  4. Microwave-Safe, but with Care: While our ceramic mugs are microwave-safe, it’s a good practice to avoid overheating. Start by heating in 30-second intervals.
  5. Handle with Care: Always grasp the mug by its handle to reduce the risk of breakage. Remember, ceramic can be fragile!
  6. Choosing the Right Size: Our 11oz mug is perfect for your morning coffee ritual, while the 15oz is ideal when you need that extra caffeine boost or are in the mood for a large hot cocoa.

Remember, a well-cared-for mug not only serves you your favorite beverages but also becomes a part of your daily ritual, memories, and moments. By following these tips, you'll ensure that your Pretty Little Lili ceramic mug lasts for years to come, keeping every drink just as special as the first.

Cheers to many more warm and cozy moments with your favorite mug! 🍵🤗
