Hand wash with lukewarm soapy water, then rinse and air dry by placing the bread board on its long edge on a dish rack, or pat dry with a towel.
The bread board comes pre-oiled. To maintain and protect the wood's luster, re-oil as needed by rubbing a food-safe oil on the board to sit overnight. Keep the surface clean and bacteria-free with a regular oil regimen. Not only does oil effectively soak into the wood and keep it smooth and supple, but it also acts as a mild water-repellant. Having a protective layer of oil helps prevent any juice or liquid stains from adhering to the cutting board surface. Wood is a natural, porous material that changes through time. Oiling your board will help sustain it longer.
