- Clean handmade cutting boards after each use with warm water and soap. HAND WASH ONLY. Wipe excess moisture, place upright, and allow to air dry completely.
- Cutting boards should be polished once a month depending on amount of use with a FOOD SAFE mineral oil (available at most kitchen supply and hardware stores). Polishing prevents cracking, seals the grain against moisture and bacteria, and maintains the beautiful finish of each unique piece.
- Rub in a thin layer of oil with a lint-free cloth in the direction of the wood grain. Apply 4-5 coats, allowing oil to soak in between applications (waiting approximately 20 minutes between coats). Leave to dry overnight and wipe off excess oil if any.
- Do not leave cutting boards in standing water as it could cause board to split.
- Store cutting boards in clean and dry place.
- Butcher block oil and beeswax may also be used to polish cutting boards. Keep in mind that they must be food safe.
- For Barn Quilts and Home Decor avoid direct sunlight as this may cause discoloration over time.
