How to ensure a long and fresh life of a wooden bowl
Bowls are intended for the serving of fresh, dry food, oily edibles, seeds and nuts, unsliced fruit and vegetables.
After use, wipe the bowl with a dry cloth.
If you want to revive the wood later, lubricate it with e.g. Teak Oil, Tung Oil, or another natural oil suitable for wood. You can also use cooking oils – linseed, colza or sunflower oil – but they do not guarantee the good quality of treatment and appearance like oils intended for wood. Rub a small quantity of oil into the wood with a clean cloth. Remove excess oil with a dry cloth and then polish the surface. The wood will again be colorful and shiny.
