One of the most helpful TikTok videos that we have seen recently is focused on the cleaning of wooden cooking spoons. If you have any other wooden utensils, you are definitely going to read on and learn more. Your ladles and spatulas can also benefit from this treatment.

Your wooden spoons have so much grease and grime lurking inside of them, but you may have no idea. Since it is not always visible to the naked eye, it is easy to see why so many people lose sight of this fact.

Well, one TikTok user shared a way to get rid of the hidden grease and germs. All you have to do? Soak your wooden spoons in boiling water!

Simply place your wooden spoon into a heat-safe glass and fill it with boiling water. Allow the spoon to sit in the water and watch as the grease rises to the surface.

When you see the amount of grease that is pulled from the spoon once it has been dunked in the hot water, you won’t be able to believe your eyes. We had no clue that our spoons could collect this level of filth.
