Also wash the board with cold water and no detergents. If cutting meat, fish, bloody products, wash with warm water and lightly scrub surface with a sink brush. You will eventually wash off the protective surface oil but its designed to be washed off. Like ablative bottom paint on a boat. Also, for best absorption, apply oil when the board is dry not after use.
One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.
I made the oil with 4 to 1 ratio and used on my board and wooden utensils and I like it a lot. Thank you all
I´ve mixed 100 gram of bees wax with 1 litre of mineral oil, works as good on knife handles, cutting boards and tired feets
This is some interesting reading.
