Finish that can handle a hand washing?

Looking at making some coffee mugs with the stainless inserts and a couple bottle stoppers, things that may need a light hand washing here and there. Wondering what type of finish would not only give a nice satin/semi finish but would hold up ok under this usage.

I don't know about the mugs, but I use Doctor's Woodshop shellac/walnut oil/carnuba wax finish on all my stoppers. They shouldn't need anything than an occasional wiping with a damp cloth.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...
