I'm sure you have noticed all the things that are new organic, Eco safe products (like sheets, spoons, and, yes, my cutting board). I loved the bamboo pillow cases my daughter gave me as a gift. She said, "wash them like anything else."

I never took into consideration that my bamboo cutting board would be any different then the butcher block ones I had used previously - wrong. Yes, I noticed it was looking dry; in fact the color seemed to change. There were no instructions with it saying anything about special cleaning after use. I love the size, shape, and the fact that it is organic, but the board looked like I was doing something wrong. I bought mine in the back of TJMax, where things are discounted. They can be very expensive, so I knew I didn't want it to be ruined so soon.


I mainly use my bamboo cutting board for chopping my veggies, however the opposite side has been used for chicken so it has to be really clean. I decided after regular cleaning and drying, to put olive oil on it.Both sides and let it set. I just left it until next time I used it, which was a few days later.

I have spray olive oil and usual out of the bottle, it doesn't matter both seemed the same. Either spray it on than wipe or put some on a cloth wiping with the way the bamboo is placed. I'm sure if you use your bamboo spoons or bowls, after a while with regular use, you would need to do the same. I haven't put mine in a dishwasher, but I'm sure that is more drying. To clean my cutting board after chicken I use lemon and salt.

Bamboo is a great product - durable and safe. Remember, however, it does need to be taken care of if using as often as I do. I would recommend if you use it only for special things and that you clean and oil it before putting away. I have noticed some beautiful salad bowls made out of this material, along with many varieties of spoons and utensils.
