What is a Color Changing Mug and How does it work?
A Color Changing Mug or a Magic Mug is a Mug that Changes Color when any Hot Liquid is poured inside the mug. This gives it a magical effect as a photo printed on the mug will be barely visible when the mug is empty but as soon as coffee, tea or any other hot beverage is poured in the mug, the photo becomes visible due to the color changing effect of the mug. Magic Mugs can be printed with your pictures or text and are available in Black, Blue and Red Colors. Below is a demonstration of the color changing effect of a magic mug:

Can Printed Mugs be Washed with Water?
Coffee Mugs that have been printed with your pictures can be easily washed with water and detergent like normal utensils. Since the print is permanent, it will not wash off in the process of cleaning the mugs. Magic mugs can also be washed similarly without the risk of losing their print.
