Tricks to care for wooden utensils

How to:

  1. DO NOT immerse wooden spoons in water for longer than a couple of minutes
  2. Wash with hot soapy water, rinse thoroughly and dry immediately
  3. NEVER put in the dishwasher
  4. If your spoons are rough and fuzzy you can refurbish them with a brand new steel wool pad. Rub along the grain of the wood until they feel smooth
  5. Rinse well and dry
  6. Oil the wood. Oil moisturizes wood and provides a protective barrier.
  7. Use non toxic oil such as mineral, olive, walnut or coconut oil.
  8. Throughly saturate the wood with the oil and let sit overnight
  9. Rub away the excess and you are done.
  10. Re-treat as needed. This will keep the wood from absorbing food stains and odors

Warnings & Cautions:

Use only non-toxic oils
