An avid cook or anyone who appreciates the finer things in life will appreciate this gorgeous addition to their home.
Caring for your wooden book
While a recipe book certainly belongs in the kitchen, it should be kept safe from fire, water and the myriad of ingredients that call your kitchen home. To keep your wooden book in prime condition, follow these guidelines:
- Heat – Always keep your wooden recipe book away from sources of heat such as a fire or electric stove, kettle, or oven. Do not place hot dishes or kitchen utensils on the wooden book. Do not leave the book in a place that is exposed to direct sunlight.
- Water – Always keep your wooden recipe book away from wet and moist surfaces. This includes the sink and the area beside it, the dish rack, as well as wet dishes and kitchen utensils. Do not leave your book near damp areas or those that are prone to mildew.
- Chemicals – Dishwashing liquid, baking soda, alcohol, and other potentially corrosive chemicals can damage the finish of your wooden book. To clean, use diluted cleaning solutions.
- Care - Wipe your book regularly with a soft cleaning cloth. Do not use rough abrasive cleaning pads. If you accidentally spill food or drink on the book, wipe clean immediately. Certain substances such as wine and coffee could leave a mark if left on for too long.
All these factors can damage the wood cover as well as the paper inside on which the recipes are written. However, the wood acts as a layer of protection that keeps the contents away from harm, at least temporarily.
