    Field Notes 10 - Kuksa Cup Care

    • 1 min read


    We all love the special touch that a kuksa cup brings to our outdoor experience.

    Here's how to keep your kuksa cup serving up those tasty cups of campfire coffee: 


    Step 1: Wash and Dry.

    Yep, it's that easy. We just recommend using a mild soap and not allowing the wooden cup to soak for a prolonged period of time.

    Recommended Soaps:

    Ivory, Dawn, Mrs. Meyers, Seventh Generation, Dish-mate or ECover. 


    Step 2: Occasionally Oil with a Food-Grade Oil. 

    Just like a wooden cutting board or spoon, occasionally oil your cup to keep the wood hydrated. This will prevent cracking or splitting. Always use a Food-Grade Oil. 

    Recommended Food-Grade Oils: 

    Mineral Oil, Beeswax, Coconut Oil (Refractionated) or Raw Linseed Oil.


    Step 3: Food Removal

    Have some camping memories stuck to your kuksa cup? No worries!

    Lightly scrub with a mixture of mild dish soap and baking soda, then rinse with warm water. Repeat as needed.


    Step 4: Sit back and enjoy. 

    That's it! Now simply sit back and enjoy that your kuksa cup. Cheers!
