Solid Wood Cutting Board Care

To ensure the longevity and optimal performance of your Solid Wood Cutting Board, follow these care instructions:
  1. Hand Wash Only: Clean your cutting board by hand with mild dish soap and warm water. Avoid using harsh detergents or placing it in the dishwasher, as this can damage the wood and finish.

  2. Immediate Drying: After washing, promptly dry the cutting board with a clean, dry cloth or towel. Avoid leaving it to air-dry, as prolonged exposure to moisture can lead to warping or cracking.

  3. Avoid Soaking: Do not immerse the cutting board in water or let it soak, as excessive moisture can cause the wood to swell and lead to damage.

  4. Occasional Oil Treatment: To maintain the wood's natural luster and prevent it from drying out, apply a food-grade mineral oil or beeswax finish to the cutting board periodically. This helps to nourish the wood and enhance its water-resistant properties.  We recommend and use- Howard Cutting Board Oil

  5. Protect from Extreme Temperatures: Avoid exposing the cutting board to extreme temperature variations or direct sunlight, as this can lead to warping or discoloration. Store it in a cool, dry place when not in use.

  6. Use on a Stable Surface: Always place the cutting board on a stable and flat surface during use. This not only ensures safety but also prevents unnecessary stress on the board, maintaining its structural integrity.

  7. Rotate and Flip: To promote even wear, periodically rotate and flip the cutting board. This helps distribute any surface scratches or marks evenly and extends the overall lifespan of the board.

  8. Avoid Cutting Bone or Hard Materials: Refrain from using the cutting board to chop hard materials such as bones or frozen foods, as this can damage the blade and the cutting surface.

By following these care instructions, you can preserve the beauty and functionality of your solid wood cutting board, making it a lasting and cherished kitchen accessory.
