How to Treat Wood Cooking Spoons


Unlike inorganic materials such as metal and plastic, wood requires some special care. For example, all wood cooking spoons should be hand-washed with gentle dish soap. Never place wet wooden cooking spoons against metal, or it will react by making a permanent black spot. Most important of all, wood cooking spoons must be treated with mineral oil every three months to prevent cracking and absorption.

Things You'll Need

  • 210 grit sandpaper
  • Mineral oil
  • Paper towel
  • Feel the wooden spoon's surface, and smooth any roughness you detect, using 210-grit sandpaper.

  • Place some mineral oil on a paper towel, and rub it on all of the spoon's surfaces.

  • Leave the spoon to sit and absorb the mineral oil overnight.

  • Wipe away any extra oil with a clean paper towel.
