1. Season Your Wood Cutting Board Regularly
This board has been pre-seasoned with pure coconut oil, so it's ready to use immediately. YAY! But just like every wooden cutting board - it requires regular seasonings at least once a month.
To season your board, we recommend using all-natural Wood Oil and Wood Wax.
To take really, really good care of it, we recommend seasoning your board every other week. At a minimum, you should season your board once a month or anytime the wood looks or feels dry.
Keeping your board well seasoned is essential to protecting the wood when being washed, preventing stains and cracks, and keeping it healthy and hydrated so it will last you many years to come.
2. Beeswax & Coconut Oil Wax
A combination of beeswax and coconut oil is the ideal seasoning. Coconut oil has penetrating properties, while the beeswax has sealing qualities. Together, they are a powerful duo in superior cutting board care.
We recommend our Wood Oil for quick touch-ups in between applications of our Wood Wax. Apply oil or wax with a clean, lint-free cloth. Diligent seasoning will help ensure your board lasts a lifetime.
3. Hand Wash Only - Never Submerge in Water
Give it a gentle hand-wash whenever it needs to be cleaned. Mild soap, a non-abrasive sponge and warm water are your friends here, but steer clear of the dishwasher. The dishwasher will ruin it!
Dry the board with a kitchen towel immediately after rinsing and then let ii finish air drying vertically, so air can circulate on all sides and moisture doesn't get stuck underneath. Excess exposure to water (letting water seep into the wood) will cause warping and cracking.
