When we have a new mate, it is difficult to endure the desire to release it. However, if we do things right, we will be able to enjoy tastier mates for longer. Today we want to tell you how to cure a mate if you like to drink them sweet.

  • Step 1. Wash the wooden or pumpkin bowl inside. This first step is done with hot water, preferably boiled, and serves to disinfect and eliminate bacteria, dust and fibers.
  • Step 2. Pour sugar (not synthetic sweetener). Two teaspoons are enough, but it depends on the size of the mate, if necessary, add more. Cover the entrance of the mate with your hand and stir it so that the sugar sticks to the walls.
  • Step 3. Let dry with the sugar. Wait a few hours until the sugar has dried and left a layer that covers the walls of the mate.
  • Step 4. Burn with coal. When the mate is already dry, pour two small hot coals of coal, cover the mouth of the mate with your hand using a reviewer to avoid burning and shake it until the embers are extinguished.
  • Step 5. Repeat the operation. This step is not mandatory, but it is good to repeat steps 2, 3 and 4 to ensure a better cure.
  • Step 6. Put weed. Rinse the mate with hot water, fill it with new grass, moisten the herb with tizbia water to swell and leave it like that overnight.
  • Step 7. The next day the mate will be ready to wash and use for the first time.
