Whether or not it's food grade is going to be the biggest issue here. Personally I would not want to use an oil that's not specifically labelled as food grade, or that the manufacturer cannot provide documentation that it is food grade for. I've also had e oil turn, so I'm not sure about that in the long term. The little bottle of cutting board oil I have (food grade mineral) is lasting forever because my boards only need a few drops at a time.

-google first. ask questions later.

Some other options which came with my bamboo board are easier for me because I usually keep them around for other things are beeswax, walnut oil, coconut oil or almond oil.

I also use Almond oil to strengthen my fingernails.

Thank you. What I bought, which turns out to be a laxative, contains nothing but the oil and vitamin E (stabilizer) and would be no problem coming into contact with food, but the bottle doesn't indicate whether "white mineral oil," as specified somewhere. Just to be sure, I will buy what is labeled for treating wood instead.

Just make sure it is 100% mineral oil with no added fragrance. Mineral oil sold as "baby oil" almost always has scent added to it.

I bought bamboo cutting boards. The sticker recommends rubbing them with mineral oil to keep them looking good. All I'd known about mineral oil is that it's sold in drugstores, but not why. What a surprise to see that it's a laxative. Before taking time to treat my new cutting boards, I happened to see mineral oil in the hardware store and in Bed Bath and Beyond. These bottles were specific to treating wood; nothing about use as a laxative.

Here's the question: Is the drugstore product identical to the one sold for use on wood? Does it matter -- shall I use the laxative type or must I buy the other one?

Thank you.
