How to Maintain Your Custom Cornhole Board

Taking care of your cornhole board is only slightly more involved than stuffing it in your garage during the week.

If you are anything like us, then you are a massive fan of cornhole. When you invest time and money into designing the perfect cornhole board, you want it to last! After all, it is one of your most prized possessions. Our Cornhole Worldwide custom cornhole boards are made from high-quality wood with sturdy construction and protective glaze, but damage can still happen. Your cornhole boards are exposed to wear and tear throughout the year. By being the main event at parties, as well as constantly exposed to weather and grime, they go through a lot! Here are six easy ways you can maintain your Custom Cornhole Board.

Keep It Clean

Keeping your custom cornhole board clean is one of the simplest and things you can do to keep it looking brand new for years and years. Use a damp cloth to wipe off dust and dirt after every use. If it is a bigger job that requires something more heavy-duty, use warm, soapy water. Cleaning your board will keep it from deteriorating and make it look sparking!

Store It Somewhere Cool & Dry

The most important step in order to extend the life of your custom cornhole board is storage. Storing your board properly ensures many more future games. It also preserves your custom design and doesn’t let it fade as quickly. Choose a special place safe from the elements and animals. Find a cool, dry place in your basement, garage, or rec room. Make sure that the objects around it won’t cause damage and that it isn’t exposed to water or humidity. After all, your custom cornhole board deserves a place of honor.

Give It a Coat of Polyurethane

Polyurethane or (poly) is the best clear coat to apply on wood especially when it comes to cornhole boards. Our custom boards come pre-coated with polyurethane to protect the wood and design. As the board wears over the years, you can give it an extra protective coat when needed. It will act as a buffer against dirt and damage. It also makes your board feel shiny and new all over again! Now and then, every board needs a touch-up. You can even add an extra bit of paint to fix any areas that have faded.

Have Case, Will Travel

Another important aspect of maintaining your board is how you transport it. During both transportation and storage, you should keep your custom cornhole board in a protective case. Luckily for you, Cornhole Worldwide has protective cases so you are all set for those away games! When transporting with your case, you should still be cautious of knocking against things and handling roughly. Happy travels!

Protect It From Weather

Hail, rain, snow, mud, and heat can damage your custom cornhole board! You can protect your board from bad weather and the elements by not exposing it to them or playing in harsh conditions. Properly storing your board properly and adding an extra coat of polyurethane can help protect it too!

Don’t forget about maintaining your bags!

Storing and maintaining your custom cornhole bags is just as important as maintaining your board. You should follow the same rules listed for your bags too. Store your bags in an airtight plastic container in a cool dry place. You want to keep them safe from water, mold, bugs, and animals so don’t leave them outside. They are filled with corn after all! If they get a little dirty, give them some TLC and wipe them down.
