How to Clean and Maintain Your Coconut Bowl

, ,

What’s great about having bowls made from coconut shells is that these natural materials are well-known for their durable properties. That means coconut bowls are tough, bump-resistant, and long-lasting. Another great thing about coconut bowls is they can be reused as planters or serve as organic compost when they do break. But who wants their coconut bowls to break easily anyway? 

As with all other products, coconut bowls can stand the test of time with proper care and maintenance. So read on and follow these care instructions to keep your coconut bowl in pristine condition.


Coconut bowls are not dishwasher-friendly, and they might get damaged when exposed to extreme temperatures. That’s why you should never wash yours in the dishwasher or with hot tap water. Also, do not soak your bowl in water for long periods.

Before using your coconut bowl, remember to rinse it first with water at room temperature. After eating your meal out of your coconut bowl, it’s best to handwash it with soapy lukewarm water to keep it spick and span.


As was previously mentioned, coconut bowls can get damaged when exposed to extreme temperatures. That said, you should avoid placing your bowl in the fridge or heating it in the microwave or oven. 

While serving extremely hot food in a coconut bowl isn’t ideal, our coconut bowls are perfect for holding cool and warm meals. To keep your bowl durable and long-lasting, it’s recommended to make it ready for sudden changes in temperature. Rinse it with lukewarm water to prepare it for holding warm meals. For holding cold meals and drinks, rinse your bowl first with cool water.

Coconut bowls aren’t immune to wear, just like all other things. After several uses, these bowls can become dull and dry. Luckily, you can easily restore your bowl’s luster and color by polishing it with coconut oil. Just put a few drops of coconut oil on a soft, clean cloth and wipe every inch of your bowl using that cloth. It’s that simple! If you don’t have any coconut oil, flax oil can also be used for rehydrating your bowl.

Cleaning and maintaining coconut bowls is definitely a breeze! If you have further questions about how to care for your bowl, don’t hesitate to send us an email at sales@rainforestbowls.com or give us a call at (805) 452 0659.
