Step 3: 

Once dry, buff the board using a clean cloth. Repeat the process until you can drip a drop of water onto the wood and it beads up on the surface and does not soak in. This is how to tell if the wood is completely protected. 

Re-apply once a month or as necessary when you see that water is once again starting to be absorbed into the wood.

FAQ - Oiling Chopping Boards

Q. Should you oil wood chopping boards?

A. Yes. Applying oil to a chopping board will keep it cleaner, healthier and will also help keep the wood from drying out, splitting or cracking.

Q. How often should I oil my wood chopping board?

A.  We recommend re-applying the oil once a month. You'll notice the wood feeling drier or looking a lighter colour. This is a good indication to oil the board again.

Q. How do you seal a wooden chopping board?

A. A. We're not really sealing wood when we oil it. The Chopping Board Oil soaks into the wood and keeps the wood hydrated; it also stops stains and odours from soaking into the wood and so keeps your chopping board looking and smelling better.

Q. Can you oil a chopping board with vegetable oil?

A. No. Vegetable oils such as olive oil, peanut oil or walnut oil are non-drying and contain fats that oxidise and go rancid. Using such oils can lead to unpleasant odours. 

Q. Is your chopping board oil food safe?

A. Yes, it is made from FDA grade mineral oil that is completely safe to use on all items of wood that come into contact with food.
