This is where you can find out how to care for your vintage item as well as other important information.

  • Care Instructions

Please hand wash your vintage items. Dishwashers scrub away the paint, decals, and designs on these old glasses and dishes.  Sometimes a Corning Ware or glass dishes like Pyrex and Glasbake will just need a good soaking before a scrubbing.  Be sure to use a gentle cleaner - try a dishwashing liquid like Palmolive or Ivory first.  Be sure you don't use a scouring powder like Ajax or Comet or a metal scrubber like steel wool or Brillo pads!  Plastic scrubbies are okay!

 

  • Where can I find out more about Pyrex?
There is a set of books that I use for most of my Pyrex information.  They are Pyrex Passion and Pyrex Passion II.  You can find out more about the books here and you can find a list of Pyrex patterns with pictures here.

 

  • Where can I find out more about Corning Ware?
I get just about all my Corning Ware information from the Corningware411.com site.  Shane Wingerd has amassed a LOT of useful information about Corning Ware, such as patterns and back stamps.
