If you have a kitchen, you have wooden utensils somewhere in your utensil drawer... From spoons, gadgets, knife handles, to cutting boards and egg cups, those wooden items need a little extra TLC to stay in tip-top shape. If you are like me, and often put wood into the dishwasher - I know it isn't recommended but I think it cleans them best - then oiling them can preserve the useful lifespan of your favorite cooking utensils. In this One By One video, I demonstrate how easy it is to do this bi-annual task.
Check it out, and be sure to listen for the tip about the type of oil you should use for this DIY project. Please see the ad (below) for the brand I use for this simple project, or check it out at Lamson Treespirit Mineral Oil. You'll hear me say in the video that I bought it at Williams-Sonoma, but they no longer sell it. While I am an Amazon affiliate, I am recommending this one because I've successfully used this brand for a long time and like it very much for this home-care task. SAFETY NOTE: Do NOT use regular cooking oils, e.g. olive, canola, sesame, vegetable, etc., as they can become rancid inside the porous wood.
