1. Clean the bamboo chopping board after you buy it home. Use boiling water when cleaning, because the surface of the chopping board is waxed when it leaves the factory, so the wax on both sides should be washed off. After washing, soak in strong saltwater for 1 hour. Salt is moisture-absorbing and can prevent the cutting board from drying and cracking.
2. After the washed bamboo cutting board is dried, the problem of thermal expansion and contraction should be dealt with. The method is to drill a hole in the middle of the cutting board with a diameter of about 5 mm to 10 mm. Just plug this hole with a small wooden stick.
3. After the treatment of moisture-proof and thermal expansion and contraction, a layer of oil should be applied to the bamboo cutting board. To bring the cooking oil to a boil, evenly pour it with hot oil, so that the cutting board is in full contact with the oil. Then let it dry, let the oil be absorbed by the cutting board, and rinse off with water.
