      Yes you can wash them, but not in the dishwasher.
      As a general rule, you shouldn't put anything with wood in the dishwasher, not even a spatula with a wooden handle..

        As a general rule, anything wooden gets washed by hand, never in the dishwasher. Even washing by hand, I don't like to let them set in a sink of water. A quick wipe down with soapy water, rinse under clear running water and then dry immediately. That will help your wooden kitchen items last longer, regardless of the finish.
