      If you use Dishwasher Mod Podge they can go on the top rack of the dishwasher. If you use regular Mod Podge or don't seal it - hand wash it. I always only had wash - they are sooo pretty I don't want anything to ruin them.

    Do you have to use the name brand sinful colors? Would any dollar store polish work?

      Any polish CAN work; however, the least expensive brands work better. Most crafters recommend Sinful and Sally Hansen.

      The Amazon link is above. Sometimes you can find Mod Podge at the dollar store, but I've never seen the dishwasher safe one at mine. Target is usually out of it or a little over priced.

    The holidays are coming. Use seasonal colors with any small baked goods or candy tucked inside - would make great hostess gifts.

      I was indulging on Nutella brownies in a mug when COVID first broke out  I had to stop buying Nutella - that's the TRUTH.
