What is magic mug?
Magic mug is also called heat changing mug, or heat sensitive mug. After you pour hot liquid into a magic mug, the color of the mug is changed, or the picture on the mug is changed into another one. You could check out below video to get more concepts. It’s awesome, isn’t it?
Is magic mug safe?
It’s safe for drinking
The heat changing effects are made happen by some special temperature-sensitive dyes (or inks) called leucodyes that are printed on the exterior of the mug, and the leucodyes are not toxic. As for the inside of the mug, there is no difference between magic mugs and regular mugs.
It’s NOT dishwasher safe !
This is the most common mistake when people use magic mugs. Most of the magic mugs are not dishwasher safe, otherwise the magic would be ruined. Yes, it’s inconvenient. But the magic is the reason why people buy the mug and love it, so it’s worth a little inconvenience.
It’s usually NOT microwave safe
Magic mugs are usually NOT microwave safe. Even some magic mugs are advertised microwave safe, it’s still NOT recommended to expose the mug in the extreme heat in microwave stove. Again, it’s worth a little inconvenience.
