Match Pewter items are dishwasher-safe in home dishwashers set to the lowest heat setting, but not in commercial dishwashers. The surface of pewter items may tarnish if exposed to hard water or high temperatures.
When washing pewter items by hand, use mildly warm water. Avoid presoaking in hot water.
If your pewter item darkens over time, it can be restored to its original shiny finish by gently rubbing it with very fine "0000" steel wool in circular motions.
