Wooden Cutting Board Construction Types

Wood Cutting Board Care

Care of wooden cutting boards is easy. Just follow these few simple rules:

  • After each use always wipe down your board with a sponge and hot soapy water. If you wish to sanitize further, you may use a very diluted bleach solution (1 part bleach to 10 parts water).
  • Never put your board in the dishwasher! The heat and water can cause the wood to split or glue joints to fail.
  • Keep your board dry. Never let your board sit in standing water or in a puddle on the countertop
  • Apply mineral oil to your cutting board (top, bottom, and sides) on a regular basis. You can just use regular mineral oil found at your local drug store. 

    1. Wipe the mineral oil on with a clean cloth.
    2. Let stand for 10 minutes or so.
    3. Wipe off excess with a fresh clean dry cloth or paper towels.
