The following care instructions will maintain your board's natural colour and grain. Olive wood is a very hard wood and will last a lifetime if it is properly looked after.
Do not put your olive wood item in the dishwasher or leave in standing water. Hand wash only using hot, light soapy water.
Oil regularly using a natural food safe mineral oil, or any other food grade cooking oil, such as coconut, olive, sunflower oil, etc. Rub a small amount of oil onto the wood using a kitchen towel.
If you plan to use your board for vegetables and meat, then to avoid contamination, we recommend either using a designated side for each, or using separate boards for each food type.
