Caring for your Wooden Board
The Good Food Ireland® Cheese Boards are designed and crafted to last you a lifetime. However, they do require maintenance, but it is easy and it is worth it. To keep your wooden board in perfect condition we suggest the following care tips.
Wood is a natural material, which is prone to movement subject to its environment. We design and engineer our boards to remain level and intact, however, if your board is exposed to conditions differing from its usual environment (such as excess moisture, insufficient moisture or excessive temperature variation) it may begin to crack or warp.
Following each use, wash down your wooden board with hot, soapy water. Please do not soak or dishwasher as this may lead to warping and/or cracking. If you do notice your board beginning to warp, turn it onto the opposite side for storage and usage and this should coax it back to an even level.
After washing, wipe your board dry with a cloth and leave standing upright to dry thoroughly before storing or hang from the cleverly designed loop, as damp boards will support bacterial growth.
To sanitise your wooden board spread coarse salt generously across the surface and scrub with half a lemon. Alternatively, neat white vinegar can be used. Cover the board in the vinegar solution and allow it to sit for a few minutes before rinsing thoroughly.
All of our boards are treated with a food-grade, odourless, colourless, tasteless, antibacterial polyurethane oil at the end stage of production. This is a hard-setting oil, which seals the grain and discourages the movement of the wood. We recommend that you re-oil your boards and wooden utensils monthly depending on usage. When your board needs to be oiled you will know because it will look dried out and thirsty!
Prior to oiling, we advise that you clean your wooden boards and utensils and allow them to thoroughly dry. We recommend using a mixture of beeswax and food-grade mineral oil (this is colourless, odourless and tasteless and therefore will not spoil subsequent food that comes into contact with the wood). Using a clean cloth, apply the oil in an even layer over the wooden surfaces and leave to soak in for a few hours. Remove any excess oil until the board does not feel damp or sticky. Apply an even layer of beeswax and rub it into the grain of the wood until smooth.
Following these simple steps will preserve the hygiene, as well as lengthen the lifespan, of your wooden boards and kitchen utensils. We have created a care package, containing mineral oil, beeswax, emery paper and sandpaper, for your convenience.
