What's the proper way to clean a Wood Cutting Board

I cleaned mine with soap and water, but finish now looks dried out. Not sure what I should use to restore moisture because it comes in contact with food. If I use olive oil, will it turn rancid?

Food-grade mineral oil will get you where you're headed. Should be able to buy it at most places selling good, wood carving boards.

This web site has an example for your review.

Thanks for the info. Believe I can find food-grade mineral oil at Walgreens. Web site above was very helpful.

Before oiling it, I recommend using lemon or mild bleach to really clean it and then let it dry. You odn't want to lock in bacteria with the layer of oil.
