- Always hand wash wood utensils with soap and warm water. The harsh detergent and heat in the dishwasher will wreck the wood in just a few cycles.
- Dry wooden spoons with a towel instead of letting them air dry. Residual moisture from washing will get absorbed into the wood, causing the wood to swell and crack over time.
- Once a month or so, rub in a little mineral oil with a soft cloth and let it sit for a few hours. Mineral oil is a food safe product that won't go rancid the way olive oil or other cooking oils would. It gets absorbed quickly, leaving wooden handles smooth but not greasy.
