When needed, use a small amount of dish soap to clean the board, using a non-abrasive towel or sponge. Rinse with hot water, wipe dry with a towel, and allow to dry upright. Every 8-12 weeks, rub a small amount of food grade mineral oil (and food grade beeswax if available) on the board, rubbing with a lint-free cloth. Stay away from olive and vegetable oils, as they turn rancid quickly. Reapply until the wood stops absorbing the oil. Wipe off excess oil, and dry the board overnight.
If you notice that your board does not sit completely flat (wobbles a bit), do not worry. This is completely normal, as wood will slightly change shape as the level of moisture changes in the wood over time. The rubber feet on the bottom of the board can be adjusted by tightening or loosening the screws to compensate for this issue.
Do not put your cutting board in the dish washer, or leave in standing water. This can lead to irreversible warping and cracking of the wood.
Do not use harsh cleaning chemicals, such as bleach, on your board.If you have any additional questions about your cutting board, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or use our contact page on baddogwood.com.
