CARE OF YOUR BOARD
- A wood cutting board will last for years with a little bit of proper care and cleaning. Gently wash and oil as often as you like -- even doing this every few months will keep your board looking great for years.
- - Do NOT submerge your board in water or put it through the dishwasher.
- - Clean your board promptly after use. You can use a bit of warm, soapy water to scrub the board.
- - Dry the board promptly after washing, and don’t leave standing water on the surface for long.
- - Disinfect or remove off-scents by GENTLY RUBBING with coarse salt, baking soda or a halved lemon.
- - Finally, rub the board with a little oil. Mineral oil is an inexpensive option. Other oils may also be used, but avoid vegetable oils that may go rancid.
CARE OF YOUR STAINLESS STEEL MUGS
Most experts say it’s okay to put stainless steel products in the dishwasher—but with a few caveats. The general fear is that detergent and excessive humidity will corrode the metal, and that acidic food soils will tarnish its polish. It’s also recommended that, if you do choose to put stainless steel in the dishwasher, it should be placed in the upper rack or the cutlery basket and spaced far enough away from other materials so as to ensure proper washing and drying. However, we feel there are far too many precautions, and that you’re better off just washing stainless steel by hand as you would any other item you might hand wash
Here are several ways that you can remove the residue that may come over time from coffee or tea:
- Baking soda: Dampen a non-scratch pad or cloth and gently rub baking soda on the stained area. After this, rinse. For deep stains, mix the baking soda into boiling water and soak the stainless steel in the solution overnight.
- Cornstarch:Make a paste of cornstarch and vinegar and apply to the tea or coffee residue. Let sit for 15 minutes before wiping with a wet non-scratch pad or cloth.
- Lemon: Perhaps the simplest method of all — skip the baking soda and soap and simply rub the cut lemon on the stains.
- Salt: sprinkling table salt on the outside of a lemon peel and using it like a rough sponge.
Always rub in the same direction as the stainless steel's grain. Avoid using harsh cleaning products, as they may corrode your mug, dulling the finish.
