How to Clean a Wooden Cutting Board
We have in-depth resources on wood cutting board cleaning as well as ongoing care and maintenance. The quick answer is dish soap and warm water. You do not want to soak a wooden cutting board for a long period of time. Instead scrub all sides of your cutting board with a sponge and then rinse making sure to remove any last food waste or suds.
Let the board completely dry and then treat it with butcher block oil and conditioner to keep it food safe.
Can you put a wooden cutting board in the dishwasher?
No. Wood cutting boards can last a lifetime if properly maintained. If they’re cleaned inside a dishwasher the wood will quickly saturate and warp from the wash cycles and heat changes.
Running your wooden cutting board through the dishwasher will quickly make it ineffective and unsafe due to the potential of cracking, mold, and other water-based bacteria.
