Reason #61: cooking utensils used for cooking stuff other than food
You might still find these in kitchen cabinets here on Brač. A stained wooden spoon and a light one.
The dark one is stained from all the different dishes it was used to cook with. The light one (unless it’s new) never stained because it’s only used for…. (try to guess before looking further)
…boiling the whites!
Before there were washing machines and hi-tech detergents, housewives would “cook” the underwear and other white laundry in a big pot that was used only for that purpose and they would stir the pot using this big wooden spoon.
And it would never stain because it was only ever used for that.
