6. How to preserve a kuksa?
Is the kuksa fragile? Can it break or crack? The kuksa being made of wood, it is less fragile than an ordinary porcelain cup for example. However it is not unbreakable! Indeed, if it falls from your height, it may crack or even break.
Moreover, if you use your kuksa badly or if you don't know how to take care of it, it can crack quickly. Here is what makes a kuksa crack:
- Washing it with dishwashing liquid. Indeed, the detergent will dry the wood and make it crack
- Drying it under a high temperature will make the wood crack
- Forget to maintain it with coffee grounds and thus make it lose its waterproof film
