How to care for your new purchase;
Each piece should be treated with care to ensure that it stands the test of time.
Our products are not dishwasher safe--please don't drown them :) Instead, clean your product after each use with a little soap and hot water, by hand. Do not submerge for an extended period of time, as this could cause the board to split/warp. Give it a wipe with a towel and allow it to dry upright, away from other boards and kitchen utensils. To disinfect, use lemon juice, white vinegar hydrogen peroxide or orange pop (not really--just checking if we still have your attention).
Once a month, apply our Rejuvenating Wax or mineral oil to maintain the item's finish, discourage cracking, and protect against both bacteria and water absorption. Using a lint free cloth, wipe on your wax/oil in the direction of the woodgrain. Apply several coats, allowing the item to dry in between. After about 4-6 hours, wipe away the excess substance that didn't soak in. Avoid using vegetable oil, which can cause your piece to get stinky!
Voila--you're done! Using these simple steps will ensure your item has a long and prosperous life.
