How to Clean Wood Serving Trays?

To maintain the beauty and integrity of your wooden serving tray, follow these cleaning and care tips:

  1. Hand Wash Only: Avoid submerging wooden serving trays in water or placing them in the dishwasher, as excessive moisture can cause warping or cracking.
  2. Use Mild Soap: Wash the tray with mild dish soap and warm water, using a soft sponge or cloth to gently scrub away any food residue.
  3. Dry Immediately: After washing, dry the wooden serving tray thoroughly with a clean towel to prevent water damage.
  4. Oil Occasionally: To condition and protect the wood, apply a food-safe mineral oil or beeswax finish to the surface of the tray periodically, following the manufacturer's instructions.
