Learn how to refurbish your wooden kitchen utensils with oil. 

I have a cottage cheese container on my counter with mineral oil in it. When my wooden cooking utensils get that dried-out look, I place them in the mineral oil for a couple of weeks. You can refurbish your wooden kitchen utensils with oil, it works well on knife handles, wooden spoons, everything! Even my wooden chopping block gets wiped down for several days running when it needs it. It's great stuff and leaves no nasty taste
