If a butcher block has been used and abused, renew it by sanding off scratches and polishing it with butcher-block oil or walnut oil. Either is nontoxic and will moisturize the wood.
Butcher-block oil also works well for restoring wooden utensils such as rolling pins, salad bowls and wooden spoons.
