  • Oiling Your Cutting Board

    Cutting boards may need to be oiled every few months or every few weeks if you live in a dry climate. When you do so, be sure to use a food grade mineral oil, not an edible food oil.

    Instructions

    1. Apply oil to a paper towel.
    2. Wipe oil over the entire surface and let sit out overnight.
    3. Use a damp cloth to remove any excess oil.
