CARE GUIDE FOR SACRED VESSELS

Water and/or wine should never be left in your Sacred Vessel for an extended period of time as it is corrosive to precious metals.

The Vessel should be carefully wiped with the purificator both inside and outside.  In general, the best cleaner for your Sacred Vessel is a soft cloth dipped in water that has been mixed with a small amount of baking soda or liquid dish washing soap, if baking soda is not available.

NEVER COMPLETELY IMMERSE THE VESSEL IN WATER

After cleaning the Vessel, dry and buff with a soft dry cloth.  If there is any tarnish on the item, hand rub with a treated polishing cloth.

CAUTION: Wipe lightly and sparingly so the finish is not damaged.
