Refinishing Wooden Punch Bowl Set

Posted by June383 (My Page) on

My wooden punch bowl and goblets are from the Philipines and I have had them for 35 years and have used them many, many times. Much to my dismay liquid was accidently left in the punch bowl and I now need to refinish the inside of the bowl. Any suggestions? What products could be used for refinishing that are safe for food? Thanks for your help.

Use the finest grade sandpaper you can find. Sand lightly, then apply a coat of "Mineral Oil" which is sold in pharmacies as a laxative. Yuck, but it's a "food grade" oil meaning it is safe on wooden butcherblocks, salad bowls and the like. It does not have any odor. Wipe on a light coat with a soft rag, then gently wipe off with another clean cloth. Don't use paper towels for this project. Good luck!
