Cutting Board Care

Care Instructions for Cutting Boards

You can lengthen the life of your cutting board by following these wood cutting board basics. Treating cutting boards with care will allow for years of chopping, cutting and slicing.

  • Never soak your board in water.
  • Do not place your board in the dishwasher.
  • After each use, simply rinse with wet sponge using hot water and a little mild dishwashing liquid and towel dry. It is fine to use a good steel scraper or spatula after use, as necessary, to keep the cutting surface clean and sanitary.
  • Periodically, apply an even coat of mineral oil to the work surface of your cutting board or butcher block. Sponge on with a rag and let dry.
