What is the finish on the wood and how do you take care of it. What kinds of things can damage the finish?
Hi. This is a hardwood maple rolling pin with a wax finish. If the rolling pin is not in contact with items that might harbor foodbourne illnesses, you can just simply wipe down the rolling pin with a dry cloth or damp cloth, and periodically season with mineral oil. Thanks!
