Full Answer

  1. Remove food debris

    Use a paper towel or dry washcloth to remove all food debris from the bowl's surface. Avoid rubbing salad oils and other seasonings into the bowl during the removal process, as this can make cleaning the wood more difficult.

  2. Wash the bowl with soap and water

    Put a very small amount of liquid dish detergent in the center of a clean, damp cloth. Turn on the faucet, and adjust the water's temperature until it's lukewarm. Thoroughly wet the wooden salad bowl, and rub the soapy cloth over the surface of the bowl to remove any residue from the bowl's surface. Completely lather the entire bowl.

  3. Rinse the bowl

    Use flowing water to rinse away the soapy lather, and examine the bowl for cleanliness. If residue or debris remains, then repeat the cleaning process.

  4. Dry the bowl

    Dry the bowl using a clean, lint-free cloth. Remove as much moisture as possible to keep the wood from swelling as it dries.
