Care for your wood cutting board

Cutting Board Care
The care for your wooden cutting board is very simple. Apply edible oil, mineral oil or olive oil on the wood liberally and let it soak into the wood overnight. Wipe off any excess oil in the morning. Using 150-grit sandpaper, rub the oil in with the sandpaper. When you first use the board it may become a little rough in the beginning from the water of washing and cutting. Use the sandpaper and oil to get a smooth finish. After a week or so the board will get “broken in” and will become nice and smooth. Use plenty of oil periodically to keep the moisture out the wood. If stained, or finish is slightly rough, use steel wool or light sandpaper, wipe clean and apply oil as above.
