CLEANING AND POLISHING
All of our products are hand wash only
We do not recommend cutting directly on the art portion of the boards, it will damage it over time.
We only use a BPA free epoxy resin making it food safe.
Ocean Art portion of Serving Board or Wall Art
We highly recommend using a soft sponge or cloth to wipe the epoxy surface clean. Do not use any abrasive brushes to avoid potentially damaging the art. If needed, hand wash the surface using luke warm water and a soft to medium soap. This will be the most effective and safest way to clean the epoxy.
We don't recommend placing anything over 100 degrees Fahrenheit on the epoxy surface as it will impact the integrity of the art.
To polish both wall art and charcuterie boards simply take a soft micro-fiber or cotton towel and wipe the epoxy areas. For wall art to help make it shine you can also apply a car polish such as Meguiar's Ultra Pro Finishing Polishing. Apply the polish generously and wipe till clear.
Wood portion of Serving Board
We recommend treating the board frequently in order to repel food particles and prevent stains and cracks from happening. It’s best to treat the board at least once a month and twice a month if used often. You can use a combination of Mineral Oil and Beeswax or just Mineral oil. Make sure to apply when the board is dry.
Apply the mineral oil using a clean cloth and spread evenly over the board. Let the oil set in for a few hours, or even let it set overnight if you can. Afterward, wipe the excess oil off using a dry cloth.
You can combine mineral oil and beeswax in order to obtain the penetrating qualities of mineral oil, with the sealing qualities of beeswax.
1. In a small saucepan, measure 1/4 cup of beeswax (chunked for quicker melting) and 1 cup of mineral oil. Stir constantly on low heat until the beeswax is completely dissolved. If temperature is too high, the beeswax will discolor.
2. Remove from heat and let stand for a minute, then pour in a sealed jar and let cool for a few hours, stirring once or twice every hour to ensure it is well blended. If you skip the stirring, the mixture won’t be as homogenous.
3. Using a small cloth, rub the paste on board until absorbed and let it stand for 5-15 minutes. With a clean cotton cloth, buff in a circular motion until the finish is smooth
AVOID VEGETABLE OR NUT-BASED OIL Do not use vegetable or nut-based oil on your cutting board for the simple reason that it will spoil and become rancid. This will leave your wood cutting board with an unpleasant smell that will also noticeably change the taste of the food you are preparing.
WARNING: OUR BOARDS MAY BE TREATED WITH OIL CONTAINING COCONUT OIL.
