Clean and Care

Oiling your board is essential for preserving the beautiful rich color of the wood and to prevent the board from drying out which can lead to cracking. We recommend using a food-grade mineral oil.

What You Need

  • A clean, soft cloth or paper towel
  • Food-grade mineral oil

STEP 1. Hand wash in warm soapy water, rinse, towel dry immediately, then stand the board up to allow surfaces to air dry evenly after each use. Always wash both sides after use for even water absorption. Do not soak or submerge in water. Wood products should never be washed in the dishwasher.

STEP 2. Apply The Oil: Using a clean, soft cloth or paper towel, apply the oil in an even layer over the wood. Periodically oiling wood cutting boards is vital to preserve the rich natural colors of the wood and to prevent it from drying out. We recommend using a Food Grade Mineral Oil. 

STEP 3. Let The Oil Absorb: Leave the oil to absorb into the wood, overnight if possible, or for at least a few hours.

STEP 4. Remove Excess Oil: Using a dry, clean cloth or paper towel, wipe off any remaining oil so that the board does not feel greasy.
