HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR SPOON
If well cared for, your spoon will only get better with age.
This is a great place to add a tagline.
Not just a decoration
Hockleycrest spoons are designed for years of use in the kitchen!
Although your spoon may take on colours and develop a worn look over time, this just makes it more beautiful and adds to its story!
THE THREE RULES OF SPOON CARE
Hand wash only
Wood and dishwashers don't get along. Extend your spoon's lifespan by hand washing with warm water and soap. Dry with a towel or let it air dry.
Don't let it soak
Don't leave your spoon sitting in water for more than a couple hours at a time. This causes the wood to absorb water and expand, which can lead to cracks.
Oil (if you want to)
Hockleycrest spoons are finished with food safe walnut oil.* However, after being used and washed a few times, the oil will wear off.
Although oiling on a regular basis is by no means necessary, if you want to renew the finish, wipe on a thin layer of any food safe wood finish and let dry before use.
Walnut oil is a personal favourite for its almost clear colour and lack of strong smell or taste, but tung oil, boiled linseed oil, mineral oil, butcher block oil, grapeseed oil and jojoba oil also work. These oils can be found at most hardware stores - just check that it says food safe on the label!
*Although uncommon, be advised that walnut oil may cause allergic reactions for people with nut allergies. If you do not want your spoon finished with walnut oil, please tell me when ordering and I will use mineral oil instead.
