Wood Care Information

Caring for you oil finished handmade wooden items

Thank you for your purchase of a One of a Kein product. To keep your item in the best possible condition, we recommend the following care.

 

After each Use

Wash with soap and plenty of warm/hot water, then dry.  Do not soak


To disinfect (if needed) use one of the following methods

Use a white vinegar soaked cloth and thoroughly wipe down your item. Wipe off excess with a clean towel.
If there are any stains or odors, sprinkle baking soda over the surface and then use half a lemon to work the baking soda into the board.  Rinse and wipe dry.  For a less labor intensive method pour white vinegar over the baking soda.  Let sit for a few minutes then rinse and wipe dry.


At least monthly or as needed (depending on use)

Cover the surface with mineral oil and let sit for at least 30 min.  Wipe off excess with a clean rag or paper towel. On heavily used items, this should be done daily to at least weekly.
