Mildew out of wooden spatula handle?
I have a really nice rubber spatula with a wooden handle from Williams Sonoma that says "removable head is dishwasher-safe." However I was always nervous about taking the head off because I thought it might make it too loose and it would eventually start falling off. Well it turns out that I should have been doing that because now I have discovered that there is mildew on the handle underneath the rubber head. Ewww! Is there a good way to get the mildew out of the wood and still keep it food safe? I've sprayed some "Clorox Anywhere hard surface spray" on it b/c that's just concentrated chlorine that's otherwise safe, but that didn't get it all off.
