Check and refill everyday.
Check that the holes are not obstructed.

Sugar Bowl

Clean and fill every day.
Check that the sugar doesn’t stick to the bowl or has become lumpy.

Mustard Bowl

Clean every day. Take the mustard out of the pot, clean the pot properly, refill with mustard. This is done to prevent a black edge on the pot.

The same procedure has to be done with jam-and honey pots.
