Butcher Block Care

About one a month I condition the butcher
 block top on my kitchen island
I use this prep surface everyday and the 
wood gets dry from the daily washings. 
The best thing to use is mineral oil. 
Do not use vegetable or olive oil.
Just wipe it on with a rag. You can really see
 the difference. Let it absorb in for about
 30 minutes and if the is any excess
just rub it in again.
Much better!

You can find mineral oil in the medicine
section of your grocery or drug store.

Cheers!
