Do a once-over with a brass brush and then use a base cleaner to wipe it down. Wax on.

how dirty is it?

If it's a new board, no cleaning necessary.

If it's used, but doesn't appear dirty, no cleaning necessary.

If it's visibly black with dirt (from spring conditions), rub off the dirt with a rag soaked in any all-porpouse houshold citrus cleaner or "simple green", then rinse off all traces cleaner with a moist rag. Let dry, then wax.

Why don't you look at the FAQ at the top of the board section where you posted your question or do a search on this forum rather than having the info fed to you?
