Olive Wood and Resin Cutting Boards 005_edited.jpg

CARING FOR YOUR OLIVE WOOD
KITCHEN ITEMS

Don't ever let your olive wood cutting boards or coasters soak in the sink or put them in the dishwasher. Instead, hand wash them with warm water and a mild detergent, rinse, and either dry them completely with a towel or stand them vertically on their side or lean it in an open-air dish rack to dry.

Your olive wood kitchen items have been treated with food-grade mineral oil. It is recommended that you oil the wood portion of your olive wood kitchen items when they get dull to restore the shine.

These items require a certain amount of moisture to keep them from splitting and cracking. You don't want to use a cleaning product that will dry them out like bleach or rubbing alcohol.

Olive wood is hard and dense, which makes it stain-resistant. If oiled regularly and cleaned properly, your olive wood typically won't stain. It's also relatively odor-resistant, so you don't have to worry about your olive wood retaining smells from your drinks. If your coasters develop any weird stains or smells you can rub them with lemon juice and salt as a remedy. Sprinkle a little over the spot, then scrub it with a damp, warm rag. Afterward, they should smell fresh and look clean once more as the acid in these liquids will neutralize the organic material or fats causing the problem.


What You Can Use To Treat Your Olive Wood Kitchen Items:

Food Grade Mineral Oil: Is a colourless, tasteless oil. It helps keep water out of the olive wood so your coaster will not cup.


Remember: 

  • DO NOT put the olive wood kitchen items in the dishwasher. The heat and water can warp and splinter the wood.

  • DO NOT dunk or let these items soak in water. The wood will absorb water and potentially warp.

  • DO NOT use bleach. This will stain and/or excessively dry the wood.

  • DO NOT put a wet olive wood kitchen item flat to dry; drying one side faster than the other can cause the wood to warp.

CARING FOR YOUR BAMBOO
KITCHEN ITEMS

Don’t ever let your cutting board soak in the sink or put it in the dishwasher. Instead after each use, wash your board with warm, soapy water, rinse, and either dry it completely with a towel or stand the board vertically on its side or lean it in an open-air dish rack to dry.

Your board has been treated with food-grade wax.  It is recommended that you wax or oil your board once a month or more depending on use to keep up the shine and water-proof.


Your cutting board needs a certain amount of moisture to keep from splitting and cracking. You don’t want to use a cleaning product that will dry out the board like bleach or rubbing alcohol. Never use cooking oils to season your board, as these will turn rancid.

If your board does develop any weird stains or smells you can use lemon juice, white vinegar or baking soda as a remedy. Sprinkle some juice or powder over the spot, then scrub it with a damp, warm rag. Afterward, your board should smell fresh and look clean once more as the acid in these liquids will neutralize the organic material or fats causing the problem.

Products You Can Use To Treat Your Cutting Board:

Food Grade Mineral Oil: Is a colourless, tasteless oil. It helps keep water out of wood and bamboo so your board will not warp.

 

Beeswax: Is a natural waxy product from the hives of honeybees. It works to hydrate your cutting board, protect it from water penetration and leave it shining. 


Remember: 

  • DO NOT put the cutting board in the dishwasher. The heat and water can warp and splinter the wood.  Only plastic, composite or glass boards can go into the dishwasher.

  • DO NOT dunk or let the board stand in water. The wood will absorb water and potentially warp.

  • DO NOT use bleach. This will stain the wood and/or excessively dry the wood.

  • DO NOT put a wet board flat to dry. If the board dries on one side faster than the other, it can cause the wood to warp.
