HOW TO USE MY BUTCHERS BLOCK DISINFECTANT SPRAY?

Step 1 – Clean

Spray the My Butchers Block Board/product with My Butchers Block Disinfectant spray and wipe down with a damp cloth.

Step 2 – Dry

My Butchers Block Chopping Board must be dry before oiling it. Be sure to include that in your timing. Caring for wooden products is an art, it takes time but so worth it!

Step 3 – Oil Soak

Leave the oil on your board overnight and give it a quick wipe in the morning to remove any excess oil.

HOW TO USE MY BUTCHERS BLOCK MINERAL OIL?

Step 1 – Clean

Wipe it down with soapy water and a cloth. Never submerge your My Butchers Block products in water. Wood is porous and it will soak up the water causing your cutting boards and wooden products to crack and warp!

Step 2 – Oil

My Butchers Block Chopping Board must be dry. Once the board is dry apply the My Butchers Block mineral oil and spread it with a cloth or paper towel.

Step 3 – Oil Soak

The oil should be left to soak for as long as possible.

Step 4 – Buff/ Polish

Use a dry clean cloth or paper towel, polish off any oil so that the board does not feel damp or sticky.

Tiny cracks cause bacteria to grow, the My Butchers Block Mineral oil will seep into the cracks keeping your board sanitary. We do suggest oiling your My Butchers Block products as often as possible in the beginning.

IS IT NECESSARY TO USE THE MY BUTCHERS BLOCK BEESWAX CONDITIONER?

YES,

Beeswax conditioner is an extra benefit of sealing the pores of the wood. Wood is still a living organism and reacts to its environment.  Beeswax conditioner will seal the My Butchers Block Mineral oil in the wood, and protect the board from cracking or warping and bacteria. 

How to apply My Butchers Block Beeswax conditioner? 
A little goes a long way!  

1. Wax on  
Rub the My Butchers Block beeswax into the board with a soft, lint free cloth or soft paper towel. Allow the wax to sit on the board for 5 min or longer. (Some have suggested to leave the wax on until the next use.)  

2. Wax off  
Once the wax has soaked into the board, buff it with a soft cloth.
