How to Take Care of Wooden Products

Wood is Easy to Maintain

Believe it or not maintaining wood products is a lot mroe easy than one might think.  With a little know how and elbow grease your products can last generations.  I am not export but here are a few tips to prolong your wooden products:

  • Never put bowl in dishwasher or let it soak in water, as it will warp and crack.
  • Avoid the microwave
  • Abrasives
  • use Mineral oil, beeswax or a mix of both to care for your wooden product once a month or if wood looks and feels dry. Never use vegetable oil, which can turn rancid.


Fill a sink with warm water and dishwashing detergent. Submerge the bowl in the water and scrub it clean, inside and out, with a scrub brush or scrubbing sponge. Do not soak the bowl in the water. Rinse it thoroughly with clean, warm water and dry it as much as possible with a kitchen towel.
