From time to time wooden spoons and cooking utensils need to be sanded and oiled. Regular oiling of wooden kitchen utensils moisturizes the wood to prevent cracks.
- wooden spoons
- coarse and fine sandpaper
- cooking oil, such as olive oil
Sand the rough wooden spoons with sandpaper till they feel smooth. I used two different sandpapers: a coarse and a fine.
Wash the sanded spoons with soapy water and let them dry completely.
Then use cooking oil to oil the wooden utensils – I used olive oil.
There’s quite a difference between the oiled and the not yet oiled wooden spoons and spatulas.
Let the oil soak in for some hours.
Then wipe off the excess oil.
