The shipping process has two parts: preparing the shipment and shipping itself.

Our products are shipped from warehouses in the United States or from warehouses in China. When it comes to a product shipped from a warehouse in the United States, the product usually gets to you for up to 10 business days. In most cases, it will take up to 7 working days.

When it comes to a product in our warehouses in China, you are expected to receive it for up to 35 working days. In most cases, it will take up to 25 working days. However, there are sometimes exceptions for reasons beyond our control or delays at holidays and we hope you will understand it.

You will find "Shipping From USA" logo at the product page header.

This mark at the top of the product page indicates that the product is shipped from the United States and will reach the recipient shortly

In any case the product has not reached you within 35 working days, please email us at info@novobam.com  including your order number to review the status of your order.

Refunds will be handled through email if necessary.

Q: How to use wooden butcher wax?

A:Using wooden butcher wax is a simple and effective way to protect and enhance the natural beauty of your wooden kitchen items, including cutting boards and utensils. Follow these steps to apply wooden butcher wax:

  1. Clean the Surface: Start with a clean and dry wooden surface. Ensure there are no food particles or residue on the board.

  2. Apply a Thin Layer: Using a clean, soft cloth or applicator, apply a thin, even layer of wooden butcher wax to the entire surface of the wood. Make sure to get into any crevices or corners.

  3. Let it Sit: Allow the wax to sit on the surface for the recommended time specified on the product packaging. This typically ranges from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the brand.

  4. Buff the Surface: After the wax has had time to penetrate the wood, use a clean, dry cloth to buff the surface. This helps remove any excess wax and leaves a smooth, polished finish.

  5. Repeat as Needed: Depending on usage, repeat the process periodically to maintain the protective layer. Regular application will help preserve the wood and extend its lifespan.

Remember to always follow the specific instructions provided by the wooden butcher wax manufacturer. Additionally, using a high-quality wax, like those available at NovoBam.com, ensures optimal protection for your wooden kitchen items.
