For health and safety, many families use wooden shovels and spoons. However, you will find that even if you wash it immediately after each use, some stubborn dirt will accumulate over time. If the condition is too bad, it is recommended to replace it with a new one. If the conditions are good, some methods can be used to clean and disinfect these wooden tableware to help remove the peculiar smell.
1. It is not recommended to soak them in water, as this may lead to bacterial growth and wood cracking in the future. When cleaning these woodwork, it is recommended to use neutral dishwashing agent, hand, dishwashing sponge or other cleaning tools, which will not hurt the wooden spoon and spatula. It is not recommended to put wooden tableware into the dishwasher because the rapid drying function may damage the surface of these tableware. After the wood is cleaned, it is recommended to dry it with a clean towel and put it away instead of drying it naturally.
2. Baking soda and lemon juice can not only help wooden spoon, spatula and other appliances remove peculiar smell, but also remove dirt that is difficult to clean. First, pour about 1 teaspoon of baking soda into the surface of a normal sized wooden object. The amount of baking soda should increase with the size of the appliance. The larger the appliance, the more baking soda is added. The smaller the equipment, the less baking soda will be added, and then squeeze lemon juice into baking soda, or without lemon juice, directly mix baking soda and water into a paste, apply it on wooden tableware, and then gently massage the surface of the appliance with your fingers or a clean cloth to let the baking soda and lemon juice penetrate. If possible, the friction direction should be consistent with the wooden line, and then wash the wooden ware with water. If the dirt is not completely removed, repeat the above steps until the tableware is clean. If the dirt is too stubborn, you can add a little crude salt to the small sudari. If the smell of wooden utensils is still a little heavy, you can also clean them with vinegar. Vinegar will have a better effect on removing odor. Mix hot water and white vinegar in the ratio of 1:1, soak the wood in vinegar for about 30 minutes, and then wash and dry with hot water.
