Emondo Kids Feeding Plates Care Tips & FAQ

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY PLATE?
 
Emondo Kids plates are made of natural bamboo therefore they cannot be put in the dishwasher or microwave. Simply wash with slightly soapy cold water and towel dry before placing vertically on a dish rack to air dry.
 
You should moisturize your Emondo Kids product on a regular basis. Every 2-3 weeks depending on frequency of use. A little bit of regular TLC will keep your plate or bowl in the best possible condition for years to come.
 
Simply wipe over or spay on a small amount (5ml Approx.) of Fractionated Coconut oil over the entire surface of the product, including sides and vertical surfaces, then let sit for for a few hours, preferably overnight. Rinse clean and you’re good to go.
 
Bamboo is a natural fibre and naturally loses moisture over time. To ensure long term use from your product it is important to retain the moisture within the Bamboo. This not only helps maintain the integrity of the Bamboo, but also helps disinfect the item due to the Fractionated Oils antibacterial qualities.
   
GENERAL CARE
  • Hand wash before initial use
  • Do not put in the dishwasher
  • Do not put in the Microwave
  • Do not submerge or soak in water
  • Wash with warm soapy water and towel dry immediately
  • Stand upright in a well ventilated area until completely dry
  • Do not dry flat
To remove tough stains you can just use some baking soda and vinegar on the stain in circle motion until the stain is gone and then rinse as normal.
Rub a lemon slice with coarse salt once a month on the plate to refresh it before treating it with the oil.
 
The colour of the plate and the depth of the lasered features varies for production, this is due to the fact that the young bamboo texture is quite bright, soft and loose, the old bamboo is darker and texture is firm and hard. When the laser machine works in same time and temperature, the finished depth will be different and inconsistent, the texture will be smoother or rougher and the product might be dark or light. The age of the bamboo for production cant be selected and cannot be controlled has this is purely due to the nature of a natural product.
 
When washing your suction plate and bowl, please be sure to remove the silicone ring when drying so that the product can be dried in full. Much like any other natural product exposed to the elements of water and air over an extended period of time, you do not want to encourage mildew by leaving your products wet or soaked for prolonged periods.
