How to Maintain Your Cutting Board
Keep your Maple Leaf at Home cutting board clean by simply washing it with hot soapy water after each use and dry it with a clean paper towel or let it air dry. Do not soak or submerge the board in water, for this will disrupt the moisture content and cause the rails to split. Wood cutting boards are NOT dishwasher safe.
It is extremely important to give your cutting board a good oiling on all surfaces every 3-4 weeks. Your Maple Leaf at Home Board shipped from the factory with a coat of high-quality butcher block conditioner which protects and prolongs the life of your board. We recommend keeping the board oiled with mineral oil, butcher block oil or butcher block conditioner.
Cleaning and Sanitizing Your Cutting Board
Scrub board with hot water and soap. Rinse and dry thoroughly. NOTE: NEVER submerge cutting boards in a sink of water! Wood is porous and will soak up water causing the cutting board to crack when it dries.
If you want to sanitize the board more thoroughly, a diluted mixture of chlorine bleach or vinegar solution consisting of one teaspoon of liquid chlorine bleach in one quart of water or a one to five dilution of vinegar.
All cutting boards, and other food surfaces, should be kept dry when not in use. Resident bacteria survive no more than a few hours without moisture. Keep moisture of any type from standing on the block for long periods of time. Beware of moisture collecting beneath the board if you leave it on the counter. If you can, prop board up when not using your board.
