MY CONVERSATION WITH RAE DUNN ABOUT HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR RAE DUNN CLAY

I reached out to Rae Dunn and asked her for some insight. She was kind enough to share with me her advice on how to take care of your Rae Dunn pottery. (We had a phone conversation, so this Q&A looks a little different.)

Q U E S T I O N // Is it dishwasher safe?

Rae Dunn told me that her pottery is dishwasher safe. But she suggests you hand wash your items. She said “the dishwasher can cause a lot of clanking and cracks might be caused if the dishes come in contact with one another”. She told me that she always washes her favorite clothing items by hand and suggested we might want to do the same with our Rae Dunn collections.

Q U E S T I O N // Can you put it in the microwave?

Yes, you can! Microwave away!

Q U E S T I O N // Can you put the BAKE and CAKE pans in the oven?

Yes. That’s what they are for!

Q U E S T I O N // Can the planters withstand constant watering?

Yes.

Q U E S T I O N // Can you leave the bird houses outside?

Yes!

Q U E S T I O N // What do you do if you notice a crack?

Rae mentioned that a crack could happen in shipping, in a shopping bag or even in the dishwasher. If you notice a crack then you should display the item and refrain from using it. She suggested putting plates on a plate hanger or putting mugs on a shelf.

Use it! Just hand wash it to prevent from cracking!

Thank you so much, Rae! You answered so many of our most pondered questions. It looks like Rae Dunn clay just got better… not only is it fashionable, but it’s also functional!

  1. 💕💕💕 use my Rae everyday! I get so excited to pick out my mug in the morning based on my mood for the day lol

  2. I will use my mugs every day, but if I used one of my unicorns and accidentally broke it, it would crush me to know the slim chance of ever getting a replacement. Love my Rae Dunn! Thanks for sharing the Q&A with us. 🙂

    1. Oh no!! I feel like that’s bound to happen… especially with wear and tear on the planters being outside. 🙁

  3. Thank you for sharing! How awesome that you had the chance to speak with her. I love all of my Rae Dunn!

    1. It was a very cool experience! She is super sweet and I was so nervous! Ha! Thanks for taking the time to read!
