Coconut Bowl & Coconut Shell Craft Care Instructions

Can I Use Coconut Bowls in the Microwave?

In accordance with the array of tests that we have conducted, we do not recommend using coconut bowls in the microwave. It seems to be that coconut bowls can be sensitive to rapid temperature changes. Therefore, we recommend a cautious approach.

Our suggestion is to heat your food separately in a microwave-safe container and then transfer it to your coconut bowl when it is time to enjoy your meal. This method ensures that you can savor your food in a coconut bowl without risking any undesirable consequences due to extreme temperature variations.

Can I Put Coconut Bowls in the Dishwasher?

We strongly advise against using the dishwasher to clean your coconut bowls. The high heat and intense water pressure in dishwashers can cause significant damage to the coconut shell, resulting in a shortened lifespan for your beloved bowl. Additionally, dishwashers can lead to a tired and discolored appearance even after just one use. To ensure the longevity and vibrant look of your coconut bowls, we recommend hand washing them with care.

How To Clean Coconut Bowls Properly?

While our Coconut Bowls are an excellent choice for reducing your environmental impact, like all things, they do require regular cleaning and maintenance to keep them looking their best.

Cleaning your coconut bowls is a straightforward process. Follow these steps for optimal results:

Use Water and Soap.

Start cleaning the coco bowls by hand washing with a mixture of warm running water and dish soap. Place your bowl in the sink and use a coconut husk washer or a gentle scrubbing pad to clean it thoroughly.

By following these simple cleaning steps, you can ensure your coconut bowls not only remain eco-friendly but also continue to look their best.

Is Hand Washing Suitable for Coconut Bowls?

Certainly! Hand washing your coconut bowls is not only suitable but highly recommended for their long-term durability. With proper care, your coconut bowls can remain in great condition for many years.

Can I Hand-Wash Coconut Bowls?

Absolutely! Hand washing your coconut bowls is not only possible but highly recommended to extend their lifespan. With proper care, your coconut bowls can last for many years. 

Here are some tips for maintaining your coconut bowls:

Tip 1: Gentle Hand Washing

Wash your coconut bowls gently by hand. Avoid using harsh detergents or abrasive scrubbers, as they can damage the natural texture and color of the bowls.

Tip 2: Regular Polishing

To keep your coconut bowls looking their best, remember to polish them from time to time using extra-virgin coconut oil. This helps to maintain their original shine and luster.

Tip 3: Timely Cleaning

After enjoying your meal, it is a good practice to wash your coconut bowls promptly. This prevents food residues from hardening and makes the cleaning process easier.

Tip 4: Air Drying

Let your washed coconut bowls drip dry on the kitchen bench or another clean, dry surface. Avoid using dishwashers or exposing them to direct sunlight for extended periods.

By following these simple care instructions, your coconut bowls can serve you for years, adding an eco-friendly and stylish touch to your dining experience. Enjoy the sustainable journey with Coco Shelly!

How to Remove Stains from Your Coconut Bowl?

It is not hard to remove stains on coconut bowls at all.

Preparation: Soak in Warm Water: 

Start by soaking your stained bowls in warm water for around 10 minutes. This initial step softens the dirt and stains, making the cleaning process more effective.

Method 1: Use a Gentle Soap: 

When the coconut shells are well soaked, gently clean the bowls with a mild soap to eliminate any lingering dirt and stains.

Method 2: Use Baking Soda

For tougher stains, you can use baking soda. Simply soak the bowl in water and add baking soda. Stir until the stain has vanished. If that does not seem to work, use boiling water with baking soda – the heat and baking soda combination effectively breaks down grease and oil molecules.

Method 3: Lemon 

Lemon is a powerful ally in stain removal, particularly for food stains. Add a tablespoon of lemon juice to a pot of hot water, soak your coconut bowl for 10 minutes, and rinse it thoroughly.

Method 5: Vinegar Solution

Vinegar is a natural cleaning agent that can tackle dirt, mold, and bacteria. To clean your coconut bowl, dilute vinegar with water before use or soak the bowl in a solution of half white vinegar and half water for about an hour. Remember to rinse all surfaces thoroughly with fresh water after using vinegar to prevent residue buildup.

By following the above-mentioned steps and methods, you can give your coconut bowl life once again.

How To Polish A Coconut Bowl?

To ensure your coconut bowl lasts while maintaining its natural beauty, it is essential to polish your bowls and spoons every 10-15 uses. The best way to do this is by using extra-virgin coconut oil, which not only hydrates your bowl but also restores its original shine.

Here is a simple step-by-step guide:

  1. Start by tearing off a piece of paper towel.
  2. Dip the paper towel into your jar of extra-virgin coconut oil.
  3. Gently rub the coconut oil onto both the inside and outside of your coconut bowl.
  4. Allow the oil to soak in and dry for approximately 1 hour before using your bowl again.
