Things you will need:
Coconut Wooden Utensils
Sandpaper (Medium grain)
Good quality coconut oil
Use a medium grain sandpaper to remove the rough, dry edges of the utensil.
Use a cloth to remove the sawdust from the spoon and to check the utensil for any remaining rough edges. If there are any remaining, re-use the sandpaper.
After using the cloth, apply some good quality coconut oil to the utensil and rub it in thoroughly.
The difference in colour and appearance should be immediate. The utensil's colour should be deeper and richer in tone.
