Wood Countertop Care

THINGS TO DO

Daily Maintenance

  • Wash your Wood countertop with mild soap and water.
  • Disinfect with a dilute solution of vinegar and water in a spray bottle, if desired.
  • Rinse thoroughly and then dry it up as soon as possible to avoid water stains.

Cleaning Spills

  • Use fresh lemon juice to do away with stains.
  • Salt and lemon can be used to scrub the wood countertop gently.

Removing Difficult Spots

  • Add 1 tablespoon hydrogen peroxide to a cup of warm water and dab it on the stain.
  • Rinse with water and wipe completely dry.
  • You can try Sanding the surface lightly with 120 grit sandpaper. Sand again with 180 grit sandpaper until the wood is smooth.
  • Replenish it liberally with drizzle food-grade mineral oil.

THINGS TO AVOID

  • Wood is vulnerable to vinegar. Avoid spilling vinegar. Instant wiping is advised.
  • Put hot pans and pots on trivets; cut only on cutting boards.

THINGS TO KNOW

  • Scratches and nicks mostly affect the upper coat. Serious damage cannot be mended, unless you remove this upper layer.
