      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..
      The extreme tempratures will cause the wood to split....

        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.

            But since most of the cross boards on pallets are 3 to 4 nches wide and 3/8" to 5/8", I have few uses for...

            I have an implanted spinal cord stimulator to help with back pain. They also have warnings about welding. I could not get one when I was working in an electric furnace steelmaking shop as the electrodes were over 1000 amps and volts. I have also decided to stay away from welding as I just do not...

            Shrink wrap systems
            by Linda In Phoenix
            What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...
