You can protect your wooden bowls with a single application of mineral oil.
Several weeks ago, I blogged about using mineral oil to protect your cutting board. There are many other uses of mineral oil and one of them is to protect your wooden bowls from drying out.
Last weekend, my mama gave me her old wooden salad bowl set. Little did she know, I have been wanting some for a long time, but didn’t want to pay the money for a good set. She no longer wanted hers and I couldn’t believe she wanted to get rid of them.
The picture above is what the wood looked like when I got the bowls. The bowls are genuine Teak Wood, made in Thailand. The wood was extremely dry, but still in very good shape. Can you believe that all of the wooden bowls still had the “Genuine Teak Wood/Made in Thailand” gold stickers on the bottom of each one? They had hardly been used.
With just one application of mineral oil, the wooden bowls already looked brand new!
If you have a set of wooden bowls that you think are a lost cause to restore, think again! With a little love and a bottle of mineral oil they can look brand new again.
I can’t wait to use them next weekend when I make salad to go with the steaks David is going to grill!!
