THINGS TO DO

- 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.
- 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
