How To Clean Wooden Spoons

Wooden Spoons
Maintaining utensils is essential for an efficient kitchen (try saying that three times fast!).  Here's a few simple tasks to extend the life of your wooden spoons.  
Lemon and salt on a regular basis helps sanitize and deodorize wooden surfaces and stains.  I simply cut lemon in half add salt and scrub directly on wooden spoons ~ then rinse in hot water.  We store our wooden spoons in a silver plate coffee pot on our windowsill ~ because of direct sunlight they tend to dry out quicker than normal.  To moisturize your wooden surfaces a little mineral oil will do the trick!
