When to use the Cutting Board Oil and the Butcher Block Conditioner?
For best results use Cutting Board Oil first then follow up with Butcher Block Conditioner. On wooden bowls and utensils, apply one coat of each, let stand at least 20 minutes then wipe off excess. On new or raw wood surfaces, like cutting boards and butcher blocks, make sure to oil them with Cutting Board Oil. To properly oil new wood surfaces, apply at least 2 coats and let each coat soak in for at least an hour. For thick surfaces apply 3-4 coats. Additional coats help ensure that the oil fully soaks into the wood. After Cutting Board Oil, maintain wood with Howard Butcher Block Conditioner. The conditioner helps protect the wood by keeping the mineral oil in and the moisture out.
