A Free Gift For you

Thank you for choosing Custom Cabinet Works. As a way of saying thank you, we wanted to extend a special gift. Below is a quick list of how to maintain your cutting board.

What To do...

  • Do use mild dish soap and water to clean as needed
  • Do use something like a bench scraper to clean off items that stick to the surface
  • Do rinse with water and dry thoroughly with a clean dish towel or paper towels; drying thoroughly will cut down the chances of ever getting mildew on board
  • Do deodorize (if stinky) with kosher salt and a lemon or distilled white vinegar
  • Do use baking soda for tough stains
  • Do re-oil occasionally with food-grade mineral oil (won’t go rancid as olive or vegetable oils do), beeswax, or a commercially available cutting board oil-we use food-grade mineral oil. Let the oil sit overnight before wiping excess. If water beads on the surface, the board is good; if it looks thirsty re-oil
  • Do keep the board well oiled as this helps keep it clean and from taking on odors or stains.
  • Do sand (and re-oil) if you want to smooth it out after years of service; typically, use 60-180 grit.
  • If you prefer, bring your board to us for sanding as needed and see the latest shop updates.

What NOT to do...

  • Don’t use it for uncooked meats, poultry, and seafood (use plastic instead) but do use for the rest of your kitchen cutting needs.
  • Don’t put it in a dishwasher or submerge it in a sink.
