Wood cutting boards all stained and dinged? You can restore them instead of buying new ones. Here's one of my well-used and stained cutting boards.
Thankfully, I have a hubby who loves his tools ... and loves to use them to help me!
He knew just what to do. By sanding and then oiling the cutting boards, I've had their life extended.
Here's what you'll need
Check out my video of my hubby fixing my board below. Then follow the simple instructions and re-new your boards as well.
Since this is a bit of a messy job, I asked my hubby to do all my boards done at the same time.
I made sure the cutting boards were clean and dry. They needed to sit for a day to air-dry.
If you do not have a power sander, you can achieve the same results using a hand-sanding block. It'll just take a bit more work, but it is doable.
Cutting board maintenance includes re-oiling the boards monthly or as often as needed. Doing this will help stop the wood from cracking or pulling apart at the joints resulting in a much bigger repair job.
You'll enjoy using your cutting boards so much more when they look new.
And now you know how to keep them that way too!
