Dark Marking on Light Colored Items of Multiple Material Types

Possible Solution

Why does my china have dark marks?

Dark markings on light china are usually the result of metal being transferred into micro-cracks and pores of the glazing. This is common when spoons are used to stir in cups or a hand mixer is used in ceramic mixing bowls. Marking can only be prevented by not scraping ceramics with metal items.
