Tips and Guidelines
With a little bit of tender loving care you can get the most out of your Otima Home Ware products by following these tips and guidelines:
Please do not use your Otima products in a conventional oven or on stove tops
Avoid microwaving products on a very high wattage
Some foods and sauces may cause staining due to natural colourants
Take extra care when reheating foods on high temperatures that are high in sugar, oil, and fat as this may damage the inner lining of the plastic.
Always handle hot containers with oven gloves to protect your hands
Load your Otima containers on the top shelf where they are secure so they don’t come loose and touch the heating elements in your dishwasher. If in doubt, a good old hand wash will do the trick!
Use warm, soapy water
A soft sponge and/or cloth to wash
A soft towel to dry, or let them air dry
Avoid scrubbing with abrasives as this may scratch the container and lids.
When using a baking soda paste, take care to rinse and not to scrub the paste off.
Stickiness, odours and stains
Make a paste of baking soda and water, or add a little bit of cooking oil.
Coat the affected surface area with your newly made paste and let it stand for a bit, then rinse.
Add some dishwashing liquid to your paste if you feel it is needed.
Leave some lemon juice to stand in the container for a while to remove odours, then wash.
A mixture of equal parts vinegar and water will also help to remove odours.
Leave containers unsealed when not in use to prevent odours
Ensure containers are completely dry before packing away
