It’s a good idea to oil wooden spoons from time to time with the same food-safe mineral oil used for cutting boards. Like all wood implements, take care of them so they don’t split or parch out. Don’t leave them soaking in water, and wipe them dry after use rather than letting them drip dry in a pool of water. If they look parched, a little oil is good. Rub it in and wipe off excess.
