Product CareAll Merritt products are food safe and BPA-free
Acrylic: Hand washing is the best way to maintain acrylic products as dishwasher rinse agents and heat can cause cracking and crazing over time. Acrylic is not recommended for use in the microwave. Do not use a rough sponge or abrasive cleaning brush on acrylic. Straight high-proof alcohol is not recommended for acrylic material, as it can cause damage if left in glass over a long period of time. To safely remove sticker residue, please use oil based lubricant such as WD-40 (or any other oil-based brand), or vegetable oil such as Wesson. DO NOT use GOO-Gone, nail polish remover or turpentine, as these will damage acrylic.
Melamine: Melamine is dishwasher safe but not recommended for microwave use.
Tritan: Tritan is dishwasher safe. Although it is heat resistant, it is not recommended for use in the microwave. Straight high-proof alcohol is not recommended for acrylic material as it can cause damage if left in glass over a long period of time. Dry with a soft, nonabrasive lint free cloth.
Natural Material Placemats/ Acrylic placemats: Do not place in the dishwasher. Not recommended for microwave use. Do not leave outside - store indoors after placemats have been cleaned. Prolonged exposure to harsh weather or intense sunlight will cause color fading and damage to natural materials such as wicker and bamboo placemats. Do not use with cookware items taken directly from heated ovens or microwaves. Wash using warm water and mild liquid soap. Dry with a soft, nonabrasive lint free cloth.
