Day 53 – Caring for wooden cutting boards and spoons

One of my most favorite accessory in the kitchen is my cutting board. It’s a thick wooden slab, rectangular in shape. I have used many plastic cutting boards before and I must say cutting on a wooden one is a different feeling ( in a nice way). However, taking proper care of it is important as well. Wooden boards and spoons have a tendency to crack if not cared properly. Here are some of the tips that I use for my board and spoons.

1. Always wash with hot soapy water after every single use.

2. Do not soak in water for long time.

3. Oil your wooden accessories once in a month. Take a little amount of mineral oil and rub the board and spoons. Leave for 6 hours or so. Wipe with a tissue. Oiling is done for maintaining the wooden surface.

4. Every once in 15 days or once a week ( if you use it very frequently) , rub the board with a piece of lemon. Sprinkle salt on it. Leave on for 15 minutes. Wash with warm water. This helps to clean the board and remove odors from it.
