How hygenic are wooden bowls and spoons?

A question I’m often asked by customers is ‘Can you get wooden bowls and spoons properly clean?’  I always refer to the following research, (which was posted by woodworking.co.uk), which demonstrates that wood is naturally anti-bacterial.  I conclude by pointing out that wooden ware does not like being washed in a dishwasher!  Warm water with a little detergent if needed is enough.

Wood is wonderful stuff; the link below will take you to the research article.
