First, after buying organic bamboo cutting boards, you should clean with boiling water, because the cutting board surface played a layer of wax at the factory, to wash both sides of the wax. Washed and then soaked in brine for 1 hour, the salt is moisture absorption, which can prevent the cutting board dry cracking.
Second, the washed organic bamboo cutting boards should be dried, and then deal with the issue of thermal expansion and contraction. The method is to drill a hole in the middle of the cutting board, the diameter of about 5 mm to 10 mm. Stopping the hole with a piece of wood.
Third, after moisture and thermal expansion and contraction, you can coat organic bamboo cutting boards with a layer of oil. With hot oil evenly on top, so that the cutting block fully access to oil. After drying, the oil is absorbed by the cutting board, and finally washing it with water.
