CARE FOR ITEMS IN CONTACT WITH FOOD
F I N I S H E S
Woodsmoke Craft wooden food products will have one of two food safe finishes applied to them for. Our most used finish is mineral oil, giving a durable finish that provides good protection against occasional moisture.
Our second choice for finishing is a hard wax that ensures a long lasting and durable water repellent finish. Providing the best level of protection and durability, we choose this finish when we strive for an all natural appearance.

We recommend that you refresh your oil finished items every few months or as required to keep them nourished and looking at their best. To do this, simply apply a small coat of food safe oil and allow it to absorb overnight. In the morning buff off any excess with a soft cloth. This will result in a good looking finish. Mineral oil and walnut oil can be used. Avoid the use of vegetable oils because they have the potential to turn rancid, possibly creating an unpleasant smell.
With the correct care your piece will last a lifetime. Never put an item in a dishwasher and avoid full submersion in water if possible. To clean, take a small dab of soap and water and gently wash the item.
