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 we always include care instructions with every package!

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. 

Serving extremely hot food in a coconut bowl isn’t ideal as the bowl might crack or break. However, coconut bowls are perfect for holding cold meals and drinks, like smoothies, overnight oats, salad, and Buddha bowls!

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 or give us a call at (805) 452 0659.
