How to care for your wooden chopping board
My wooden chopping boards are made here in Ireland from solid beech. Treat them right and they will repay you with years of service. For regular cleaning, wash your board in warm soapy water and dry immediately and thoroughly. Never leave your board to soak as soaking can cause the wood to split.
To clean away any lingering odours, wipe your board with white vinegar and leave for a few minutes. The vinegar smell will evaporate and hopefully so will the food odour.
Every once in a while give your board a thorough clean. Sprinkle the board with coarse salt. Using half a lemon rub the salt all over the board in a scouring motion. Wipe away any excess salt. Pour some mineral oil onto your board and rub in the direction of the wooden grain. Wipe off any excess oil and your board is ready for action.
