MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS


Whether you purchased a cutting board or not, knowing how to care for wooden cutting boards are essential for the long life of both our boards as well as any other wooden boards.

WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE?

When the board arrives at your doorstep, a generous coat of cutting board conditioner has already been applied to the board. However, with daily uses and washes, the protective layer will begin to slowly erode. That is why it is important to re-condition your board EVERY TWO MONTHS or so to make sure there is always a protective layer fighting against moisture.

HOW DO I DO IT?

I recommend using a high-quality mineral oil to maintain your board. I personally use a product called Walrus Oil(no, it's not made from walruses), and it can be purchased on Amazon. However, any other mineral oil will work. 

Oiling your board is super simple. Apply around 2-3 tablespoons of mineral oil for the front as well as the back, and make sure you oil the sides as well. You can spread the oil with a paper towel. We recommend letting the board soak up the oil overnight on top of a piece of cardboard for easy clean-up. The next morning, wipe the excess oil with a paper towl, give it a quick wash, then you're good to go!

NOTE: If you use your board every day, you may need to oil your board more often. The more times you wash it, the more oil that will escape from the wood. If your board looks dry and doesn't look as dark as it should, it needs to be oiled.
