Mineral Oil - Chopping Board Protection

100% Mineral Oil

Mineral Oil is a food safe oil that is applied to the board to protect the chopping board and other wooden items from food and liquids.

I recommend re-oiling your board on all sides at least once a month to protect it from food and water damage; it will also keep it looking it's best by helping to "heal" knife marks.

How to use:

Squeeze a liberal amount of oil onto the board, spread the oil using a cloth in a circular motion until the board is covered. As the oil soaks in you may need re-apply oil if necessary. Remember to oil all sides of the board.
