  • Use bleach

  • Place or rest hot things on the board like pots or pans that may burn or discolour the wood

More tips:

To preserve your Deer Park Woodwork Cutting Boards and Butcher Blocks for years to come we recommend using our Board Butter. Simply apply a small amount with a soft cloth every once and while to keep the wood from dehydrating.

In use over time, your knives will mark your board. To make them disappear, a light sand with 220 grit or more sandpaper is all that is needed.
