How To Care For Your Wood Cutting Board
Our customers are crazy about the look and feel of our cutting boards, but they often have questions on how to care for them. We are revealing the best ways to take care of these special cutting boards so you don’t have to miss out.
- Nurture your board.
Our boards have the rich beauty of reclaimed wood, make sure to treat them with care. With proper treatment, a wooden cutting board has the ability to withstand wear and can last a lifetime. Remember where your cutting board is from and that it is an organic element and like trees, will soak up moisture. After cleaning your wooden board, dry with a clean towel to soak up as much water as possible.
- Nourish often.
You will love your board for many reasons, but most importantly because it’s environmentally friendly. It goes without saying, but the proper manufacturing of wood products is cleaner, safer, and better for the environment than the manufacturing of plastics. In the process of making the cutting board you know and love, not a single tree was cut down. Because of this, the boards love being conditioned with a mineral oil like our Wood Conditioner to preserve them.
- Utilize everything.
It’s important to take advantage of all of the space on your board when chopping. Wood has the natural ability to manage cuts and slices without raising the sharp edges or marks you would see with a plastic cutting board. When it’s time to throw out the plastic cutting board, a properly treated wood cutting board will still be functioning as well as the day it was made.
- Don’t neglect.
