seasoning


The flavoured wood product used to prepare or provide food is an important aspect of keeping it in its best condition. For example, when you buy a wooden bowl for the first time, it takes one week a day, then once a week for the next three weeks, then one month a month. When it looks bored or feels dry, it needs seasoning. Purchase quality wood preservatives or food grade mineral oils in pharmacies or grocery stores. Mineral oil is cheap and not as corrupt as oil. The bowl (or plate) should be thoroughly dried. Freeze the bowl with mineral oil and let it soak for 5 minutes to several hours. Wipe the oil as usual and use a bowl.


Wooden bowls are easy to restore and maintain!


In order not to damage wooden bowls or other wooden foods or utensils, many people tend to be careful not to soak them in water or scrub them with soap and water, for fear they will dry the wood. As a result, I saw many wooden bowls and utensils in the sale of flea markets and courtyards, which are sticky; internal or external (usually people try to get rid of them).


Fortunately, your problem is easy to solve. Simply dip a bowl or wooden object into warm water and soap. Use a nylon wash sponge to scrub the bowl (or item), rinse thoroughly with hot water, and wipe immediately with a absorbent cloth. If the outside of the bowl still feels a bit sticky or sticky when dry, scrub the surface again with HOT water and soap and rinse thoroughly with hot water.

After drying the dry bowl for an hour or two, the inside or outside may look a bit dry with scrubbing. If so, use some fine steel wool (number 0000) and bowl and wipe or high quality wood to gently scrub the inside and outside of the bowl. Then smooth it with a soft, clean rag. The idea is to nourish and protect wood, adding bowls and wood rubs to the surface of the wood. Wood should end with a beautiful light. However, if it is shiny, feels greasy/smooth or sticky, you need to continue to polish more.


Wash thoroughly after each use, occasionally apply oil and polish, your bowl should remain for a century or two.


Wooden bowls, wooden boards and cutlery are a highlight of the kitchen. Wood is naturally antibacterial, so occasionally cleaning and disinfecting these items helps control the amount of bacteria that can grow on wood. Although it is generally believed that the porous surface of wood actually deprives the bacteria of the warmth and moisture needed for survival, the bacteria actually die within seconds.


Cleansing


Washing your hands is the best way to care for wood. Do not soak them in water for too long to prevent cracking or cracking. Use warm water and mild soap to clean the surface. This will clean the exterior without causing the wood to damage the material's elements. Do not put wooden items in the dishwasher or in the microwave.


disinfection


Sterilizing wooden bowls and wooden utensils helps control the growth of bacteria. White vinegar can create miracles. Mix 1 part white vinegar with 5 parts water, thoroughly wet the bowl and allow the solution to finish its work for a few minutes. Rinse the bowl with warm water and let it dry. Or fill the spray bottle with a 50-50 mixture of white vinegar and water and spray as needed. Wipe the excess with a clean towel.


Damage repair


If your wooden bowl feels vague, the wood grain will rise and benefit from hand sanding. Grab approx. 400 to 600 sandpaper or steel wool and gently wipe the damaged area until smooth. Wash out the bowl and dry as usual. If you do not have any convenience, brown paper bags can even work in place of sandpaper. If your bowl sinks, start with rough sandpaper, and then slowly into finer gravel, 80, 100, 120, etc. until the area is smooth. After fixing the area, wash and dry as usual. Don't forget to let your bowl bloom after polishing.
