*Instructions and warnings
Please wash thoroughly before using. There may be impurities at the first use, which you can gently wash off with water.
Before the first use, submerge the bangjja in approximately 1L of room temperature water with 2 to 3 tablespoons of vinegar for 20minutes. Then, wash it with dish soap and the blue side of bangjja sponge(sold separately).
There may be color changes which is very natural for bangjja products. If the color has changed, brush gently with the blue sponge while both bangjja and sponge are dry, and rinse with water.
When there’s hard residue or a stain, gently scrub it with the silver sponge(*do not use a stainless steel scrubber).
Please avoid using in a microwave, oven, dishwashwer, or gas stove(bangjja pots are allowed).
When storing for a long period of time, please dry it off completely, wrap it in cloth or paper, and place it in a plastic bag to avoid any moisture contaminations.
