Restoring Moisture to Wooden Plates Using Wood Conditioner

Wooden plates are a popular choice for serving food due to their natural beauty and durability. However, if you use the wooden plates daily, wooden plate can become dry and lose their moisture, which can lead to cracking, warping, and the development of harmful bacteria and mold.

To prevent this, it is important to restore moisture to the wood regularly with wood conditioner. This way you can extend the life of your wooden plates and keep them looking beautiful and functional for years to come.

Additionally, restoring moisture to a wooden plate can enhance the natural beauty of the wood, bringing out its rich colors and unique grain patterns.

Restoring moisture to your wooden plate is a simple and quick process that can be completed in a short time with just a few materials. By following these simple steps, you can help preserve the beauty and durability of your wooden plates.

Step 1: Preparation

To begin, prepare the materials such as Beeswax or natural oil suitable for kitchenware wooden products as wood conditioner. It is important to ensure that the moisturizer is non-toxic. To apply the moisturizer, you may use a foam brush, soft clean cloth, or even a soft tissue paper.
The wooden plate must be clean and dry before applying the wooden moisturizer.

Step 2: Application

Once you have everything ready, it's time to apply the Beeswax or natural oil to the wooden plate's surface. Apply a thin and even layer over the entire surface. If you accidentally apply too much in some areas, simply wipe away the excess with a soft cloth or tissue.
Excess Beeswax or natural oil left on the wooden plate can make them sticky, attract dust and dirt, and affect the taste of the food. Additionally, Beeswax or natural oil can discolor or darken the wooden plate over time, which can affect its overall appearance.

However, please pay special attention to cracks and crevices in the wooden plate. These areas may need a little extra moisturizing.
Cracks and crevices in wooden plate are areas where moisture can easily escape or be absorbed, which can cause the wooden plate to dry out and become damaged over time. By paying extra attention to these areas and adding more moisturizer, you can help to prevent this from happening and ensure that the wooden plate remains strong and durable for longer.

Step 3: Resting

After all surfaces of the wooden plate are coated with wood conditioner, then leave it overnight or at least 3 hours to allow the wood conditioner to deeply penetrate the wooden fibers and restore its natural moisture for optimal results.
Leave the wooden plate in a well-ventilated area. It is recommended to store the wooden plates side by side instead of stacking them. Avoid placing the plate in direct sunlight or using any heating devices, as this may cause the wood to crack or warp.

Once the wooden plate is completely dry, it is safe to use and can be stored as usual.

Step 4: Maintenance

To maintain the moisture level of the wooden plate, it's recommended to apply Beeswax or natural oil every 2 – 3 months or as needed. For example, if you use the plate daily, you can apply it once a month.

Additionally, store the wooden plate in a cool, dry area away from direct sunlight and moisture to prevent it from getting too dry or cracking and molding.



In conclusion, taking care of your wooden plates is simple and easy, as long as you follow the steps to restore and maintain their moisture level. With a little bit of effort, you can ensure your wooden kitchenware lasts for years to come, adding a touch of natural beauty to your home cooking. So go ahead and give it a try, and enjoy the satisfaction of keeping your wooden plates in top-notch condition!
