Maintenance of cutting boards
All Nesmuk wooden boards are made with the greatest care from the heartwood of the best southern German oak - the heartwood forms the centre of the trunk cross-section and is the oldest and most valuable part of a trunk. Nesmuk only processes strips cut crosswise to the grain, so-called end wood: this protects the finely ground blades, as they are always cut from above into a bundle of fibres instead of cutting up wood fibres. This also makes the board itself much more durable and preserves its fine surface. Thanks to the high content of natural tannic acid, oak wood is naturally antibacterial and meets high hygienic requirements.
Considering the following hints, the beauty and practical value of a wooden board can be preserved for a very long time:
• Do not clean in the dishwasher.
• Do not leave in water!
• Always store in a dry and airy place.
For the care of all Nesmuk boards, we recommend the use of the Nesmuk care wax oil. Made from pure vegetable oils, valuable natural resins and the finest beeswax, it reduces absorbency and solidifies the wood surface. Rough and scratched areas of the board can be smoothed with the rough side of a rinsing mud or the enclosed abrasive cloth before oiling.
