Be sure to wash well with antibacterial soap after use. The Asanka bowl is made of clay and thus may absorb water from time to time. To prevent molding, place a clean Asanka bowl periodically in the oven for 15 minutes after you have used your oven and it is cooling down. You can also set your oven to the "warm" setting and leave the Asanka bowl in there as well, this achieves the same effect of drying out any remaining water from the bowl--preventing molding and strengthening the clay.
