Care For Your Cutting Board To Make It Last



When you buy a new cutting board it needs to be oiled every day for a week then every week for a month then every month there after depending on how much you use it. I use mineral oil that is purposely made for wood but any mineral oil will do. This will keep the health of the board for years to come.

More Information:

To clean it before oiling, use baking soda in water for general cleaning or salt crystals rubbed directly on board for odors. Then apply a good amount of oil and let it sit for 24 hours. Wipe off any excess and use as you normally would.
