Are wooden spoons hygienic?
Consequently, do wooden spoons hold bacteria?
There are a few concerns associated with wooden spoons, but none of them hold water. It's true that if you don't properly clean your wooden spoon, it will retain bacteria—but so will any other type of spoon.
Additionally, when should you throw away wooden spoons? Wood absorbs moisture easily and this could foster bacteria. To be on the safe side, replace your wooden spoons every five years or when they start having cracks, discolouration or soft spots.
People also ask, how do you sanitize wooden spoons?
Sanitize your wooden spoons. To sanitize your spoons, first clean the spoons with warm, soapy water. Next, lay the spoons on a flat surface — such as a clean baking sheet — and pour 3 percent hydrogen peroxide over them. Wait fifteen minutes, rinse the spoons off and hang them to dry.
Are wooden bowls sanitary?
Wooden kitchenware is not dishwasher safe and should not be left in water to soak - all that excess water will increase the chances that wood will split. Our wood care and preserver products will add longevity to your wood bowl, cutting board or wooden utensils.
