How to Clean Bamboo Cooking Utensils

We covered in our last blog post about using Bamboo Cooking Utensils and how bamboo is actually a strong grass-not a wood; a natural resource. Keep in mind that washing and taking care of these utensils are similar to taking care of wooden utensils. However, always remember they aren't one and the same! You can keep your bamboo utensils looking sparkly new by cleaning them and conditioning them as needed.
TIPS on How to Clean Bamboo Cooking Utensils:
*Refrain from washing anything bamboo in the dishwasher as the harsh detergents and heat can scorch our precious bamboo cooking tools!
What you will need:
  • Dish Soap 
  • Cloths to dry
  • Food Grade Mineral Oil or Bamboo oil

Step 1:

Use a regular mild dish soap or pH balanced soap, and wash your bamboo utensils in hot soapy water. Use a cleaning cloth to scrub away stuck on food particles.

Step 2:

Rinse bamboo utensils in warm water. Pat-Dry the utensils with a clean cloth to the best of your ability, then stand them up right in your dish dryer/drainer to complete the drying process. 

Step 3:

If your bamboo utensils start to look or feel dry, re hydrate them with mineral oil, or bamboo conditioning oil (found in most kitchen supply stores). To use the oil, apply several drops to a clean cloth and rub all over your utensil. Repeat this process if necessary. Let the utensil cure for a day or two before using again. 

So there you have it! Your very own tips for keeping your Bamboo Kitchen Utensils nice and squeaky clean the right way.
