Caring for your Java-Teak Wood
This beautiful wood is hardy but does need a little care. Hand-wash with only mild soap and water, don't let the bowl soak, and dry right away with a soft cloth. Never air-dry teak bowls or put them into the refrigerator or dishwasher. Store your bowl away from direct sunlight, heaters and the oven. Occasionally, rub with olive oil to maintain the finish.
