Cleaning your coastersThe right drink coaster is one that is durable enough to just pop in the dishwasher. The porcelain glass coasters and plastic ones are good for the purpose. By doing so, you can keep your coasters free of bacteria. Sometimes stains on the coasters do not come off with just a damp cloth because different liquids stain the coasters in different ways. Cleaning your coasters regularly can renew their absorbent properties. You can get rid of fresh stains by washing them right away in cold water. But the more stubborn ones need a light scrubbing with a sponge or soft brush. Be careful never to use a harsh agent to scrub the surface of the coaster. When you buy a stone drink coaster set, take care not to put them in the dishwasher. Although they do not need regular cleaning, better wipe them off occasionally with a damp cloth.
