Wash wooden boards with warm soapy water, rinse in hot water, wipe clean, and allow to dry upright. Every few weeks generously sprinkle coarse salt over the surface of the board, rub it with a sliced lemon, then rinse well with hot water. Oiling is also recommended to prevent cracks and to insure your board will last for many years. See instructions below:

1. Wash your wooden cutting board in warm soapy water. Rinse the board thoroughly, and dry it with a soft cloth.
2. Fill a large bowl with hot water. Place a bottle of mineral oil into the bowl and let it sit for about 10 minutes or until the bottle feels warm to touch.
3. Apply a generous amount of the warmed mineral oil onto a soft cloth. Wipe the mineral oil across the entire surface of your wooden cutting board.
4. Let the mineral oil soak into the cutting board for approximately six hours. Remove any excess oil with a soft cloth after the board has finished soaking.
