Well, I found one of them used and abused in the kitchen sink the other day. Apparently, the hubs used one of my spoons to mix up a batch of cherry Crystal Light.
Ummmm.......yeah......CHERRY flavor.........really?! These photos were taken after I tried soaking it in distilled vinegar for a couple of hours. It originally looked like he dipped it in red paint. The vinegar soak helped a little but not much. It probably would have worked perfectly if it had been anything other than a red stain.
Why didn't he just use one of the other wooden spoons - the ones I keep in the little drawer to the right of the stove for sauces? Why did he have to use my pretty spoon? Why didn't he rinse the spoon instead of leaving it in the sink allowing the stain to really set in good. These are the mysteries aren't they?
Do you have any special tips or advice on how to get a stain out of a wooden spoon?
