- Do scrub it clean with mild soap and water. Dry it thoroughly with a dish towel or cloth.
- Don't leave the board out for a long period of time dirty. It's best to clean it directly after using it. If too much moisture sits on the board, it could become damaged.
- Do keep the cutting surface clean by scraping off food residue with a steel scraper.
- Don't use it to cut raw fish and poultry. Err on the safe side and cut fish and fowl on plastic boards.
- Do apply a small amount of mineral oil to the board. Rub it in, then sponge away the excess with a rag. Allow it to dry before using.
- Don't soak the board, wash it with harsh detergents, or stick it in the dishwasher.
- Don't always cut in the same place on the board. Distribute the cutting over the entire work surface so it wears evenly.
