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