Here are some reminders on how to care for your bamboo glass jars!

  • Make sure to wash jars with dish washing soap and air dry before use and applying labels

  • Glass jars are dishwasher and microwave safe, only if without vinyl labels

  • Bamboo lid is recommended to be hand washed only and dry thoroughly before reusing

  • Since bamboos are made of natural wood, make sure not to leave them wet for a long period of time

  • Residual odor on the glass and silicone rubber may happen depending on the item stored. Simply wash with dish washing soap and air dry to eliminate the smell.

  • While the jars have airtight lids, they are not vacuum-sealed. Proper food storage still has to be observed
