wooden chopping board... best way to keep clean?

Goodmorning everyone,

Have a small question...

I bought one of the beautifull Jamie Oliver wooden chopping boards and was wondering what is the best way to keep these boards clean and hygienic since they can not go into the dish washer....

As I heard, these boards can be kept for ages if well taken care of.. so I would like to know the best way to "cherish" them.  whistle

Have a great day...  big_smile

A good scrub with very hot water and detergent, rinse and allow to dry should do the trick. Dont leave soaking in water as the wood could warp (personal experience.)
I personally don't use my wooden chopping board for meat.
I wonder if rubbing the clean dry board with vegetable oil would help care for the wood?

Thanks for your reply, that is indeed what I was planning on doing...

When I received it, I cleaned it with hot water and detergent and then put some olive oil on it and rubbed it in ... hope this does the trick.

any one else who has been using a wooden board for a long time???

wink bye for now.

Some may disagree, but I've seen butchers on TV demonstrating hygeine with wood boards.  They used diluted bleach on boards that had been used for cutting meats every so often, wash every time with plenty of hot water and detergent, allow to dry.

There is a specific mineral oil used for sealing cutting boards.  You can purchase it labeled as such and I wouldn't advise using anything else to seal wood used in food prep.
