Chances are your board needs to be conditioned again. Grumpy’s Love Butter Board Conditioner is made from a blend of food-safe Mineral Oil and high-grade local Maine beeswax. Simply apply a small amount of paste to all surfaces of your cutting board with a soft cloth and leave it to sit for 5 minutes. This gives the mineral oil time to penetrate into the wood fibers and restore your board. Using the same soft cloth, buff the beeswax into all surfaces to give your board a moisture-resistant coating. If Grumpy’s Love ButterBoard conditioner is not available, use a soft cloth and apply pure heavy mineral oil to all surfaces of your cutting board and leave it to sit until it is dry. Just remember we can not honor the One Year Warranty if Grumpy’s Love Butter is not used.
