Looking after your wooden utensils

Crafty Gatherers-9.jpg

Wooden utensils are not only beautiful, they are functional and help limit plastic in our lives! The trick is though you have to look after them and they will look after you by lasting a lifetime.

- NEVER put your wooden items (any!) in the dishwasher. Hand wash them with hot water and a little dish soap, but never let them soak in water, this leads to cracking.

- Dry immediately to prevent moisture and mould building up in the wood.

-  When they are looking dry, you can rub them with a little olive or coconut oil and it will revive them!

- Every now and then you could sprinkle with salt and rub with lemon to deodorize and help get rid of any stains.
