What if my Boos Butcher Block or cutting board is stained or discolored?
Sprinkle kosher salt or ordinary table salt on your Boos Blocks and then use a damp sponge or paper towel to rub the stained or discolored area. The salt will absorb stains, flavors, and odors. For stubborn stains, try sanding down the area with a fine grit sand paper. It is very important to sand with the grain of the wood, never against the grain. This sanding process exposes a brand new wood work surface. Once sanding is complete, it is recommended to oil your blocks with John Boos Mystery Oil, or mineral oil to control the moisture content in the blocks to keep them from drying out, cracking or splitting.
