Care and Cleaning
Take care of your board in a few easy steps
Your board is alive and needs proper maintenance. To preserve the antibacterial properties of Teak wood, it is important to wax your board often.
Follow this care instructions and learn how to clean and wax your products:
Clean your board by hand, Wooden boards are not dishwasher safe. It is ok to use water and soap. Make sure to clean inside the juice canals and handles. You may use vinegar as well.
Don't leave the board submerged in water as it can lead to warping.
Dry the board with a small towel and leave it to rest on one side overnight.
Long exposure to direct sunlight may warp and even crack wooden products.
It is a great idea to apply wax often; any time you notice the coating is fading.
We recommend beeswax or coconut oil. Do not use olive or vegetable oil, as it may accumulate acids and interfere with food flavors with time.
Spread the wax with a clean towel and let the wood soak it for at least 30 minutes.
Remove the excess wax using a clean cloth.
