This is gross.

A kitchen challenge is making the rounds where you take an old wooden spoon and boil it for 20 minutes. The results are…let’s just say I’m never using a wooden spoon again. Or at least, more than once.

This comes from a judge on MasterChef Australiawho presented the boiling as a way to clean them. It turns out, even the dishwasher doesn’t do the job well enough, so boiling gets all the old oil and food particles to come out. The results…well…someone actually did this on Facebook.

Ew. Just…Ew.

Oh, god. I used a wooden spoon last night.

I mean, sure, if you do that every time you use the spoon, it won’t be as bad. But that’s common sense and LOOK AT THAT WATER.
