Wooden kitchenware is not dishwasher safe and should not be left in water to soak - all that excess water will increase the chances that wood will split. Our wood care and preserver products will add longevity to your wood bowl, cutting board or wooden utensils.

Furthermore, are slate plates hygienic? It is possible to buy slate with a food-safe sealant applied. (For instance, the slate serveware from Just Slate is sealed with a food-safe acrylic coating). It's important never to soak wooden tableware in water as this can cause the wood to split, and cracks can harbour bacteria and food residue.

One may also ask, are wooden chopping boards hygienic?

Most wooden boards are not dishwasher safe, so it's vital that good hygiene practices are in place to avoid breeding grounds for dangerous bacteria. They are still the most popular choice of cutting surface by far.

How do you clean wooden plates?

Fill your kitchen sink about half full of warm water. Add dish detergent and the wood plates. Start cleaning the plates within five to 10 minutes (don't let them soak--soaking causes wood to expand, which may create cracks). Scrub the front and back of each plate with a soapy sponge.
