All our products are treated with food safe orange oil and beeswax.
Never put wooden items in your dishwasher or leave them soaking in water. Simply wipe clean with a soapy dish cloth and dry immediately. If left soaking, the wood fibres may lift. Use a fine grit sandpaper to sand down lightly and treat with wood oil or beeswax. Use linseed / flax / walnut or coconut oil to recondition. Avoid using oils that may go rancid over time, like olive oil.
Store in cool dark place.
Avoid minimal contact with acidic foods as they react with copper.
Note that copper tarnishes over time, to recondition, mix 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water + 1 spoon salt. Bring to a simmer and soak copper utensils. Wash with running water and wipe clean.
