Q: What's the best way to clean a wooden rolling pin? I have dried pastry and sugar stuck like plaster to mine because I didn't wipe it right away. I'm afraid to scrape it off or soak it. Help!

Editor: Patricia, I usually use a pastry scraper to scrape off dried-on dough, then scrub off any residue with warm water and soap. Though the pastry scraper is metal, I've never had any issues with the rolling pin getting scratched or otherwise damaged.
