Maintenance of Your Olive Wood Cutting Board
In order to maintain the beauty and functionality of your olive wood cutting board, you must take good care of it. Wash it promptly after each use with mild detergent and immediately dry them with a towel to avoid warping. It's also important not to use the cheese board as a meat-cutting surface as the juices can soak in and contaminate the wood.
You can use walnut, almond, or olive oil to keep the sheen on the board. Once a week, gently rub some of the oil of choice into the wood. Although this is not a hard and fast rule, disinfecting your olive wood cheese board in the microwave for approximately three minutes is generally acceptable.
