Information on Wood & Hygiene
Undoubtedly, the most hygienic chopping board is going to be one that is cleaned most frequently, regardless of what it is made of.
Wooden boards are very hygienic, as recent research carried out at a leading American University has proved. Their findings have shown that wooden surfaces are capable of decontaminating themselves, without the aid of bleach or harsh cleaning solutions.
It is not entirely clear how woods defence mechanism works, but seemingly the bacteria are sucked into the porous surface and “strangled” by the anti-microbial chemicals with which living trees protect themselves.
Their tests proved that bacteria died very quickly on wood, but thrived on boards made from all types of polymer and rubber, and wood was simply the best hygienic choice.
A full report giving details of tests is available by contacting T&G’s Marketing Department.
T&G’s Wood Treatment Oil
Mineral Oil for wood treatment is far superior to vegetable oil and is the product T&G recommend to care for your wood products.
The benefits are:
- Mineral Oil dries much quicker and does not leave a sticky residue
- Mineral Oil sinks deeper into the wood enhancing its preserving qualities
- Mineral Oil and specialised additives make it a product solely intended to enhance the look and preserve the life of your product.
