How do I clean Greenware?

Greenware breakage

Having a problem breaking greenware when you are cleaning? You can prevent this by creating ‘soft bisque'. This is done by firing your greenware pieces to cone 018 before you start to clean. The bisque will still be soft enough to clean, yet hard enough to allow you to handle without easily being broken.
