How do I clean my wooden rolling tray?
Step 1: Wipe With A Clean Cloth (Remove Dry Residue)
Wipe down the surface of your wooden rolling tray with a clean cloth until the coat of dry residue is removed. It's important not to try scraping or rubbing the surface of your rolling tray with a hard or sharp object. If you try to remove resin by scraping the surface of your rolling tray, you run the risk of damaging the rolling tray's smooth surface. Unless you don't care much about your rolling tray, you'll want to make sure that you don't scratch and chip the surface of your rolling tray. For the best results, try using a microfiber cloth to wipe the surface of your wooden rolling tray.
Step 2: Spray With Soap & Water or Household Wood Cleaner (Diluted)
Spray your wooden rolling tray with either a trusted household wood cleaner, or a combined solution of soap and water. If using soap and water, make sure that the mixed solution is dilute. Avoid using a solution that foams or suds, and ensure that your wooden rolling tray doesn't get soaked with excessive water when cleaning. Using a dilute solution of soap and water will work as a solvent to dissolve the hard to remove resin on your wooden rolling tray. However, limit your use of cleaning solution when cleaning your wooden rolling tray. If you allow too much moisture to enter the wood of your rolling tray, the material will become weak, leading to rot and splits/crack in your wooden rolling tray.
Step 3: Clean With A Soft Bristle Brush
Continue to clean your rolling tray by using a soft bristle brush to gently scrub the hard to remove resin from the surface. Avoid using a brush with sharp hard bristles, because this can damage the surface of your wooden rolling tray. By using a solvent before cleaning your rolling tray, you'll be able to use a soft brush to gently scrub away resin without scratching and damaging the surface of your tray. Try using a soft toothbrush to clean the surface of your wooden rolling tray, to avoid scrape damage and make it easy to get into the groove of each curved corner.
Step 4: Time To Roll
Roll up some sticks, and get ready to get lit.
