Maintenance advice

To clean

To clean the shelf, it is recommended to do it by hand and not to use hot water. Also, don't let the board get wet for too long. Simply rinse the shelf under the tap using a scouring pad or dishcloth and then pat it dry with a tea towel. Although dish soap is not necessary, it is recommended after contact with raw meat, poultry or fish.


Make sure you dry the board properly, putting it away wet will make the wood want to work. His work ethic is admirable, but a chopping board needs to take it easy. After drying, preferably place it upright. It is important that the grain of the wood is vertical. This greatly reduces the risk of warping.


After rinsing and drying the plank, it is ready to be completely rubbed with mineral oil. This provides a natural protective layer. It is best to use a neutral oil such as almond or grapeseed oil and the use of olive oil is not recommended as it becomes sticky and dirty more quickly. Preferably give the plank a second, third or fourth oil treatment after the oil has soaked in.
