Cleaning your glass-within-glass cruet.
Although the cruet can be placed in the dishwasher,
sometimes the dishwasher jets do not wash the inside
of the two vessels very well.
You can take a small piece of cloth, add dishwasher
soap to it, and put it inside one side of the cruet
at a time. Add a small amount of warm water. Put your
finger over the spout and shake vigorously. The wet
cloth will shake around to all sides of the glass, cleaning
Rinse and repeat if necessary. You can remove the wet
cloth with a toothpick or tweezers to get it back out
of the spout.
After thorough clean water rinsing, you can dry your
cruet in the oven at 350 degrees. All condensation will
evaporate in just a few minutes.
CAUTION: Let cool before touching.
Your cruet is made from Simax glass, a laboratory technical
grade glass that will not break from heat of 350 degrees.
