Wood counter tops are beautiful, relatively affordable, and more sustainable than other options. The biggest catch is they require regular care. Follow these simple steps to keeping your wood counters looking their best for years to come:
- Wash wood countertops immediately after using especially when it comes to moisture containing stains, scraps and spills.
- Oil wood countertops once a month with a high quality mineral oil. Only mineral oil is food safe and won't turn rancid like cooking oils.
- Avoid contact with vinegar, which is acidic enough to dissolve the glue holding the wood together.
