Care Instructions: Boards
Just a forewarning: Wood will always move but these steps will help prevent and/or prolong it from doing so.
Boards should never be put in the dishwasher. Hand wash with warm water and soap on both sides. This will keep the moisture level even within the wood. Towel dry and leave to dry leaning up against something for maximum air flow.
About Oiling: Oiling is the process of treating your board.
You can use whatever food grade oils/waxes you prefer. Mineral oil works great, and you can easily find it at any hardware or box store. You can also treat your board as much as you would like. The more you do the better it looks and longer it will last. But, a good rule of thumb is when it looks dull it needs oil.
Using a mineral oil – apply, let it sit for 20+ minutes (no need to rub in) then, wipe dry. May be used after application.
