Drinking Horns and Mugs
What is the best way to care for my drinking horn?
In order to enjoy your drinking horn as long as possible, there are some important principles to follow. In this way, cracks and old drinks sticking out in the vessel can be avoided.
The first principle is that the horn should never be put in the dishwasher. Hot water and the long-lasting humidity soften the horn substance to such an extent that it can be completely deformed. If you want to clean the horn from the inside, we recommend cleaning it with a suitable brush and a gentle cleaning agent. In case of unpleasant odours, it can also be left to soak for an hour with lukewarm water and a cleaning tablet. Afterwards, it should be rinsed thoroughly with cold, clear water and placed upside down to dry.
To keep the surface supple, you can regularly rub the drinking horn with vegetable oil. This prevents cracks and increases the life of the horn.
Finding the right drinking horn stand
Drinking horn stands come in all shapes and sizes. They decorate the methorn artistically and can serve not only a practical purpose but also as a remarkable decoration for the home.
To find the right drinking horn stand, we recommend measuring your own methorn beforehand. The most important thing is the diameter of the pointed end and the open end of the horn. Since the horns are never 100% round at the opening, but oval, the widest part should be measured.
The length should also be measured and correspond to the specified dimensions of the drinking horn stand.
