Here you can see the effect when applying mineral oil.
I’ve had this since 2005 and move from San Francisco to Berlin with it. I oil it once every other month with a basic mineral oil, to restore the health and lustre of the board. Such a pleasure doing so. Take care of your wood cutting boards: scrub them occasionally and dry them with a towel to ensure they will have a chance to dry thoroughly.
Removing dead leaves and stems from your houseplants is an easy way to enhance their appearance and your own happiness.
Kitchen shears, office type scissors made of a heavy steel (and for the left hand), then plant shears. The Apple pocket knife I’ve had since c. 2000.
My birds nest fern lives in a large pot on a stool in our kitchen/living room. I’ve added a mixture of bark and rock for visual appeal, but it will also help keep moisture in.
I was determined to enjoy the very last layers of honey stuck inside the glass jar. So I poured my hot oatmeal and began stirring.
Buy real honey, produced in the region where you live. Glass jar, not plastic. It’s worth it.
Relabelling my devices and tools gives me great satisfaction.
It’s also a chance to clean everything with a towel and rubbing alcohol. Wiping away oil and dirt can make everything look fresh and new again.
