Caring For Your Board or Block
Wooden boards and blocks should be kept clean with a good scrub using hot, soapy water after each use. Please, do not soak your boards in water - they will crack and warp. Cole's Blocks should never be washed in a dishwasher.
For disinfecting, use a weak bleach solution to clean the boards after cutting raw meats to ward off bacterial contamination.
Instructions for Care:
- Do not immerse in water
- Wipe your block clean with a damp cloth or hot soapy water after every use
- To sanitize your board flood the surface with a bleach and water solution, scrub with sponge, rinse, and towel dry
- Occasionally moisturize your cutting block by rubbing food grade mineral oil or our Block Butter onto the surface and sides, including bark - wipe off any excess that is not absorbed
Care for your cutting block correctly and it will reward you with a long life and the best performance possible.
