How To Easily Clean A Cork Trivet
1. Use a piece of fine grit sand paper to sand the top of the trivet. I used a 220 grit paper. I laid the trivet on a piece of cardboard to sand because I was already working on another project and the cardboard was out. The sanding will produce a little dust, so the clean up was contained and easy.
2. After sanding, shake off the dust created by the sanding. I just tapped it against the cardboard a few times.
3. Wash the trivet with dish soap. I used Dawn and a little scrub pad.
4. Allow the trivet to fully dry before use.
The difference was amazing and it took only a few minutes to get this result. Give it a try before throwing out a well used trivet.
