      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.

            Glad things worked out.

            I just updated my older PC. The hard drive was 500 gb and eight years old. I cloned it to a one TB SSD (solid state drive). Put the cloned drive in and worked perfectly with all my old programs. The computer is now much faster. The new drive was about $100 and...

            Once upon a time ( in the 70's) i attempted bow hunting. I believe the bow had a 45 pound draw. I quickly learned that it was not for me. It takes lot of hard work and practice just to be fair at it. Good is a whole different level. I hope you do better than I did.
