How do I remove stains?

First, soak the bowls in warm water for 10 minutes. This will help soften the dirt and stains, and make cleaning easier. Next, use a gentle soap to clean the bowls and remove any residual dirt and stains. If that does not work, you can try

Baking Soda

Baking soda is a great cleaner that can remove most stains. Just soak the bowl in water and add baking soda, stirring until the stain is gone. If the stain is stubborn, try boiling water and adding baking soda - this will break down the grease and oil molecules


Lemon is highly effective in removing food stains. Simply add a tablespoon of lemon juice to a pot of hot water, soak the item for 10 minutes, and rinse it off well


Vinegar is a natural cleaner that will get rid of dirt, mould, and bacteria. To clean your coconut bowl, dilute vinegar with water before using it, or just soak the bowl in a solution of half white vinegar and half water for about an hour. Be sure to rinse all the surfaces thoroughly with fresh water after cleaning with vinegar to avoid any residue build up.
