In summer time, most of our cold drinks get warm really quickly. And sometimes, it's a good idea to serve your coffee or tea in something other than a glass mug! So whether you're looking for cute tip or just need some inspiration, this blog has what you need.
Here are some of the things you can do to enjoy cold drinks on summer time. And if you are using your mugs that you bought from this store, here are also some of the tips that you can use to keep them safe in a hot warm day.
1. Keep them in an air-conditioned place
The last thing that you want to happen is that your mug breaks because of the heat. To prevent this, you can keep them in a cool, air-conditioned place. Your kitchen is usually the best place because it has a lot of air circulation. So when you are baking or doing some other activity that needs a lot of heat, just keep your mugs away from the stove or anything else that can cause a lot of heat to accumulate. Don't keep it in a really cold location as well. The cold air might damage the mug too. So it is best to keep it in a room temperatured location.
2. Keep them away from sunlight
This one is pretty self-explanatory. You don't want your mugs to get sunburnt and the best way to prevent that is to keep them away from the light. And because of this, you should also keep your mugs away from windows and other places where there is a lot of sunlight. This is especially true if your house has a lot of windows.
3. Clean them regularly
As we have mentioned above, keeping your mugs away from heat is also another way to keep them safe. But even if you are careful with your mugs, coolers that got a lot of dust can still be damaged. So how do you keep it clean? The best way is to clean it often. You can take the chance of washing the mug in hot water and then immediately put it back into the cold water in order to get rid of any dust that might have accumulated. This will give your mugs a brand new look.
4. Keep it away from chemicals
Just like we said before, in summer time, you want to keep your mugs out of sunlight and heat. The best way to do this is by keeping them in a air-conditioned place which has a lot of air circulation. But if you don't have an air-conditioned room yet, the second best thing that you can do is to keep your mugs away from chemical substances. Make sure that the water where you are washing it is clean too. Using detergent that is not chemical heavy is an important factor when claening the mug so, make sure the brand is a really known and high quality one of the detergent.
5. Don't bring it closer to the sand
This tip is really simple, but so important. The last thing that you want is to bring your cup of tea closer to the sand. Because the sand will weigh it down and make your cup fall from your hands. So keep the mug away from the sand by placing it in a place where it won't be affected by the sand.
6. Don't take it from cold to hot instantly
This is something most people know about but still... For the people that doesn't know it, if you had an iced coffee and instantly put your mug under a hot water, your mug might crack or even break, because of the instant temperature change. If you are going to wash it, make sure that the mug gets to the room temperature before putting it under a hot water and shock it like that. We don't want our precious mugs to break, right?
7. Don't use it as something else
Don't use your mug as an ice pack for your drinks. It's super tempting to use our mugs as something else besides drinking from it. But if you don't want the mug to get damaged, the best thing to do is to refrain from this temptation.
There you have it! These were some of the tips that we here at mugandsocks use to keep our mugs clean and safe while we are enjoying a nice warm day. Hope this blog helped you.
See you on the next one!
