Care instructions for your oiled Chopping Board or kitchen Accessories


Thank you for purchasing your new board
Your new piece is either solid or laminated pieces of solid timber, looked after, it can last a very long time, developing a character of its own. 
It was treated with at least two coats of White Mineral Oil before leaving my workshop.

I advise that you continue to condition the board with the same food safe oil, which is available from your local DIY store or some good cook shops.
With regular applications of White Mineral Oil (also known as Butcher Block Oil) the board or accessories are a lot easier to keep clean.
Oiled wood absorbs less moisture, reducing the risk of the wood cracking and it will improve the resistance to stains.
Application of Oil:
Apply a generous amount of oil with a clean rag or kitchen paper. Leave to absorb for a few minutes, and then wipe off any surplus. I handle the board, with the warmth of my hands helping the oil penetrate the surface.
The frequency of application depends on how you use your piece.
The saying goes:
"Oil it once a day for a week, once a week for a month, once a month for a year, and then once a year for the rest of your life..."
Cleaning:
To clean it you should scrub it with hot water and soap. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Do not leave it to dry in hot sunshine or near a heat source. Never submerge cutting boards in a sink or bowl of water! Wood is porous and will soak up water causing the cutting board to crack when it dries.
Problem solving
Smells
To eliminate garlic, onion or any other smells from your board you can rub it with coarse salt, baking soda, lemon or vinegar, leave for a few minutes and rinse.

Stains
Do not leave anything moist on the board for a long time, ie. cheese overnight, as the moisture gets into the wood and stains can develop.
