AS WITH ALL NATURAL WOOD PRODUCTS, PLEASE HAND WASH ONLY!
DISHWASHERS WILL DAMAGE YOUR NATURAL WOOD PRODUCTS
Please apply your preferred oil before using your amazing Food Nanny Board.
The Food Nanny Board Oil Options
We recommend treating the board frequently in order to repel food particles and prevent stains and cracks from happening. It’s best to treat the board at least once a month or if used often, twice a month.
It’s essential to make sure that the board is clean and dry before applying any of these oils.
Mineral oil is the most commonly used option because it is a safe and most cost-effective way to keep your wood products looking great for years. Food safe mineral oil can be purchased at your local drug store or major retailer.
Apply the mineral oil using a clean cloth and spread evenly over the board. Let the oil set in for a few hours, or even overnight if you can. Afterward, wipe the excess oil off using a dry cloth.
Beeswax and Mineral Oil Combo
You can combine mineral oil and beeswax in order to obtain the penetrating qualities of mineral oil with the sealing qualities of beeswax.
Combine using equal parts of beeswax & mineral oil. Using a small cloth, rub the paste on the board until absorbed and let it stand for 5-15 minutes. With a clean cotton cloth, buff in a circular motion until the finish is smooth.
Avoid Vegetable or Nut-based Oil
Do not use vegetable or nut-based oil on your wooden products for the simple reason that it will spoil and become rancid. This will leave your wood products with an unpleasant smell that will noticeably change the taste of the food you are preparing.
Finally, love and enjoy using all of your fantastic Food Nanny Products!
