I've been using my bamboo cutting boards for almost 7 years now. I used ordinary cooking oil. I don't soak them when washing, just a quick swipe with a soapy sponge, then rinse and dry.

If yours are getting dry, just oil them again.


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

I'll second this. Perhaps not ruin but rancid oil is not something you want to deal with in a cutting board.
Add a little wax to the mix and it won't hurt. It only adds a bit of longevity between treatments.

If it needs oiling use mineral oil and make sure you wipe it VERY WELL because mineral oil is a laxative ����

Awww.... Come on now Jennyema, Don't have them wipe off the excess. That's half the fun of using mineral oil.
As I said I don't know squat about bamboo but dealing with wood boards I can say they don't do well with "Natural" oils in the long run.
Mineral oil and beeswax are your friends here.
