Spoon and wooden utensil care

Help! My spoon isn’t as smooth as it was when I brought it home!

Wooden utensils can become a bit coarse after they become wet and this is perfectly natural. To combat this issue you can wet and sand with fine grit sandpaper. Use 220 grit if possible. Wipe clean and then add some spoon butter to treat.

What is spoon butter you ask? It is a mixture of coconut oil and beeswax and will help keep any wood item in your kitchen looking good while giving a protective coat.

Wooden utensils are easy to use and maintain but just require a bit of simple maintenance every now and then. We think it is worth it!
