Care & Maintenance for Chris & Chris Products

END GRAIN BUTCHER BLOCK SURFACES

  • Do not allow moisture of any kind to stand on wood surface for long periods of time. Do not put in dishwasher
  • Butcher block surface should be thoroughly cleaned after each use with a well wrung, moist soapy towel, cloth or antibacterial soap or wipes. Avoid the use of harsh chemicals or abrasive materials to clean the surface of the butcher block as these may harm the natural wood surface. Be sure that the wood surface is dried completely after use and/or cleaning to prevent warping, cracking, and separation
  • The surface of the block should be treated before use when new and periodically thereafter with a "food grade" mineral oil or Block oil to help prevent bacterial penetration and to allow for easy cleanup 
  • Please apply food grade mineral oil or block oil before use
  • Spread liberally over the wood surface and work into surface with a paper towel or clean dry cloth. Let sit for at least 30 minutes then wipe with a dry cloth or paper towel. The surface is now ready to use

 

BASIC MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE

  • Apply once a day for the first week and once a week for the remainder of the month. After that oil once a month for the first year or whenever dry.
