Caring For Your Poker Chips -You went online and found the perfect set of poker chips. After a lot of shopping around you bought your set and have enjoyed months of use…and they are filthy! This was my first go around when I got my high quality set of chips. So lets go over the basics of how to clean them so you can enjoy your chips much longer.
First you should know that clay poker chips are not comprised of just clay. They are in fact a mixture of far more durable goods. These goods are then compressed at nearly 11,000psi and baked at almost 320F. Poker chips also come in varying degrees of softness and you need to understand this when the time comes to decide if you want to oil your chips. The only supplies you will need is a tooth brush with soft bristles and some very mild detergent.There are a few things you must know about chips before we go on, Dewapoker and I mean you MUST know this. Heat and prolonged exposure to water will not be good for your poker chips! What that means for you is that you should get the idea of using a dishwasher or washing machine out of your head! You also do not want to soak them in water.
Fill your sink about 1/3 with warm water and add your detergent. Put the head of your toothbrush in the water and mix the water until you get some lite bubbling. Use the toothbrush to gently scrub the outside of the chips. (do not soak the chips because you do not want water to get under the label) After gently removing all the grime you will again have a clean set of poker chips. Always let them air dry, the oven or microwave will be the fastest way to need new poker chips.
