3 tips for taking care of your cutting board
1. Ater use, hand-wash the cutting board in warm soapy water, rinse it clean, and wipe it dry. Never let it soak in water.
2. At least every three months or whenever the wood looks dry, reapply a protective oil finish, such as mineral oil, to prevent water from penetrating and damaging the wood.
3. When the cutting surface becomes heavily scored, sand it with a random-orbit sander, starting with 80-grit and progressing to 180-grit sandpaper. Then reapply the finish.
