Care for Your Products

All of the wood species on our site can be cared for with the same simple process - Hand wash in mild soap, dry thoroughly. Oil occasionally with pure corn oil.

Never soak, or put woodenware in the dishwasher.

If you are able, it is best to store cutting boards standing up. Make sure to towel dry after washing, then stand it on its side for storage.

If you'd like to deodorize your board, wash and dry it as you normally would. Then, once dry, sprinkle it with baking soda (or kosher salt). Squeeze a half of lemon on to the surface with the salt, and use the lemon to scrub the board. Let sit until dry, then scrape off and wash and dry.

We would suggest trying this on a small section of the underside of the board first, just so you'll know how your particular board will react to it.
Alternatively, you can use a 1:4 white vinegar to water solution on the board. Wash and dry after it sits for several minutes.
If there is a stain that has not come out with normal washing, use a baking soda and water solution to rub the stain with, wash and dry as normal.
