Caring for wooden utensils is crucial for maintaining their longevity, hygiene, and functionality. Wooden utensils, known for their natural antibacterial properties and aesthetic appeal, can last a lifetime with proper care. Regular cleaning, occasional oiling, and avoiding prolonged soaking or exposure to extreme temperatures prevent warping, cracking, and bacteria buildup. This not only extends the lifespan of these eco-friendly kitchen tools but also ensures they remain safe and effective for culinary use. Proper maintenance keeps wooden utensils looking good and performing well, making them a reliable and sustainable choice for any kitchen.

Care Guide:

1. Wash new utensils in warm, soapy water and dry thoroughly. After each use, hand wash with hot, soapy water and avoid soaking or using a dishwasher. Dry immediately after washing.

2. Condition the wood periodically with food-safe mineral oil, especially when they appear dry. For stains or odors, use a baking soda paste or lemon juice.

3. Store your utensils in a dry place away from heat and sunlight. Replace them if you notice deep cracks or splits to prevent bacteria buildup.
