Wood offers a significant weight advantage and better safety compared to glass and ceramics (i.e. does not shatter when dropped, leaving no sharp fragments) as well as better insulation: Hot foods stays hot longer, cold foods stay cold longer.
Washing wooden articles for the first time
When used for the first time, We generally suggest soaking wooden articles in salt water for 3-4 hours and washing them normally before the first time use. It is normal for the surface of wooden articles washed for the first time to feel coarse. It will be smoother and smoother when being used from time to time.
How to make wooden articles brighter
If you want to make the grain of wooden articles more beautiful, you can soak them in saline water before washing clean, then dry them in the air and slightly cover the surface with edible oil (olive oil works best). After 12 hours' airing, the wood will soak enough oil and the wooden articles will become more endurable and good-looking!
