    Wood is a very different material to ceramics or plastic, and such, it has very different qualities and needs.If soaked in water, it may absorb too much and be difficult to dry it properly, if stored too close to a heat source like a radiator, it may crack.

    1. Wash gently with warm, soapy water. (not boiling)

    2. Make sure it is properly dry before stacking it. (Drip and towel dry)
