The further adventures of ZonnenBoxen

Ann Elkington

Well, hello there. . .where were we?

Recently,  I've been asked how to clean ZonnenBoxen® . .Well, they're acrylic, so they are pretty durable. But given the current fears of infection in the news, I ran them through my dishwasher. Yep, regular cycle, regular detergent lozenge, right in there next to the dirty coffee cups.  What I did not anticipate was how beautifully they would emerge!  The silky surfaces are now even more so, better than I could ever get with wet emery cloth. The "fogged" quality is much more even.  While I wouldn't recommend including them with every night's dishes (simple soap and water is fine, or a swipe with alcohol if you're really worried ) because it does micro-abrade them, and will wear down the color eventually, a trip through the dishwasher every now and again will not hurt. Acrylic will craze with tiny cracks when repeatedly exposed to extremes of temperature, however.  I also do not recommend using water temps over 150F and top rack only.
