How do I take care of my wooden cheese/chopping board?
Wash boards after each use in warm, soapy water. If you have chunks of food stuck on the surface or in nail hole, use a knife or kitchen scraper to remove most of it before washing.
Do not leave boards to soak! Do not wash wooden cutting boards in the dishwasher.
Dry thoroughly before storing. We suggest air-drying in the dish rack. If you do not dry your board properly, it may start to grow mould if not used regularly.
To remove odours, rub down with half a lemon or spray with some vinegar. This will also help sanitise the board.
You do not have to oil your board – but should you want to you may use any edible oil such a sunflower or olive oil. This will result in the board’s appearance turning darker in colour.
Keep your knives sharp. Dull knives mean that you have to press harder to cut, which will mark up your board.
