Hello - I have two china soup/cereal bowls that need mending. One has a hairline crack, and the other is in two pieces in my kitchen cabinet (a hairline crack that finally split).

What can I do to mend them? And once mended, can they be used as normal (put in the dishwasher)?

you can repair them for display purposes, but not for use.

When you pick up a dish or cup, and hot food or tea gushes onto your leg you will know why

The dishwasher will dismantle them.

I am sure that I read somewhere if you simmer them in milk, the proteins in the milk do an invisible mend after the broken ones have been mended.
agree with Pigletjohn that they are for display only.
