I'm sorry YT...there are very very nice shoes though, lol....

I LOVE wooden spoons, BC, I don't think I will ever have enough but I've never tried bamboo paddles..so I'll put them on my wish list!

It sounds like you all need a dehumidifier and some mildew hangers for your closets. That is a lot of mold!!
Household bleach is pretty much all the same. It does get weaker once opened.

Yeah, we have a dehumidifier that runs 24 hours, what we lack is a roof, lol, and there seems to be a pretty bad case of rising damp, but spring is in the air now!

I own a lot of wooden spoons, paddles and turners. I've never had the mold problem with them.

But keep them out of the dishwasher! The machine detergent will strip off the luster and shine that's on them and make them old looking and worn. I already made that mistake with the first few!

The three new Oxo wooden spoons that I have will not be washed in there.

I have found that olive and bamboo can handle soaking and dishwashers. Other wood utensils are cheaper, and I'm sure they work for neat freaks to clean as soon as a spoon gets used. But the olive and bamboo can sit in the sink to soak and can take dishwasher abuse.

lu lu, I am sure your have a decorative medium jar with a wide mouth. Place
wooded spoons etc in it. Leave on counter. Do not place in drawers. They are decorative and just rinse and use. You see the decor in most magazines.

Aria, that is how I keep my utensils on hand -- in a white heavy glass/ceramic pitcher on the countertop, along with my wisks, spatula, ladels, etc.

Lulu, if you decide to buy new, I suggest silicone utensils. I have a set of all the above in black silicone, & have been very pleased.

(Lulu, I guess we can't mention our designer wooden shoes )
