I read a story the other day about a new kitchen challenge that is going viral. So I wanted to give it a try. I have 2 kitchen utensils that are wooden. I have had them for years.I usually throw them in the dishwasher. I figure that is the best way to keep them clean. Apparently it doesn't really keep them all that clean. That is why this challenge is even a thing.

You are supposed to take your wooden spoon or whatever you have and leave it in boiling water for twenty minutes and check out how much dirtiness comes out. I don't even know where I got my wooden spoon and wooden fork from. I couldn't even tell you how many years I have owned them.

I was just curious to see how much old nasty food particles and stuff was left in the water after the twenty minutes. This experiment is causing a lot of people to get rid of any wooden utensils they have. I am not even though the water was all murky. I just know that I am going to boil them a lot more since that is the best way to remove any grossness.

So in my water it definitely had some particles and was not clear like when I put it in. I definitely washed the pot extra good after this. There is no way I wanted any of that water sticking around and I definitely had no plans to drink it. That is for sure.
