Hand wash with warm water and mild soap, then towel, or let air dry. Do not place woodenware in a microwave, or a dishwasher, or let it soak in water. When/if desired you can restore some of the original luster by re-oiling with food-grade Walnut, Linseed, or Tung oil. I recommend Mahoney's Utility Finish Oil.
When properly cared for, woodenware can last for generations!
The wood Virgil uses comes from local sources such as community drop-off sites, storm damaged or old/diseased trees that have been removed by arborists or homeowners. Virgil carefully selects these discarded hardwoods and up-cycles them into beautiful and functional handcrafted goods.
