The structure of bamboo tableware is mostly porous and loses bamboo fiber, which is easier to absorb moisture. If it is in a humid environment, it may become moldy. When bamboo tableware has mold, it will affect normal use, and it will be detrimental to our human health. Therefore, we can ensure the safety and performance of bamboo tableware through the following anti-mildew and mildew-removal methods.

Anti-mold method

1. If you want to prevent the bamboo cutlery from becoming moldy. After each use of bamboo tableware, it is best to clean oil and impurities and wipe off the moisture on it to keep it dry. Then dry it and put it in a cool and ventilated place. Remember not to put it in a humid environment, because it can easily cause mildew.

2. If the air permeability of the bamboo tableware storage box at home is not good, it is recommended to buy a new bamboo tableware storage box with good air permeability. Because the ventilation of the bamboo tableware storage box is not good, it can easily cause the bamboo tableware to become moldy. At the same time, put the bamboo tableware storage box in a ventilated place, which will keep the bamboo cutlery dry for a long time and prevent mold.

3. At the same time, bamboo tableware can be sterilized at high temperatures, which can also prevent bamboo tableware from becoming moldy. First, put the bamboo tableware in the pot, then add the right amount of water, add the right amount of salt, wait for the water in the pot to boil, put the bamboo tableware into the pot for disinfection, and then put it in the sun to dry.

Generally, moldy bamboo cutlery is caused by Penicillium, which can be used after being scalded with boiling water and carefully washed. But it is better not to use it because moldy bamboo tableware means that the place where the bamboo tableware is placed is humid and the temperature is relatively high, and mold spores are already present. So if it is stored again, it will be moldy twice. It is recommended to store in a well-ventilated place. In addition, the bamboo tableware must be kept dry after washing.

Mold removal method

When the bamboo tableware has become moldy, we can remove the mold in the following ways.

1. Scrub with steel wire

If there are mildew spots on the bamboo utensil, you can use a stainless steel wire ball or sandpaper to scrub the mold in the place, and the mold can be worn away.

Soak the moldy bamboo tableware in the rice-washing water, and then scrub with salt or alkali, or wipe it with ginger or onion several times, then rinse with hot water, pour some vinegar after washing, and put it in the sun to dry. Wash with clean water.

3. Wash with soap, alcohol, and water

Wipe with a 2% soap and alcohol solution, then wipe with 3%-5% sodium hypochlorite or hydrogen peroxide, and wash it.

4. Rub and wash mung bean sprouts

Put the moldy bamboo tableware and mung bean sprouts together and repeatedly scrub, and then rinse with water. This method can also remove the mildew on the bamboo tableware.
