Wooden cutting boards, smells and oil

dixiegal | Feb 17, 2012 11:25 AM

After reading the topic about smelly wooden cutting boards, I got to thinking. If the board smells of, say, onion and garlic, even after cleaning it, several times. If you then oil it with mineral oil or mineral oil and beeswax, will you then just seal in the smell? Then again, the oil and beeswax didn't keep the smell out of the board, so maybe it can't trap it in either?
