Just wasn’t thinking, but after sanding to resurface a wood cutting board I wiped it down to remove any left over dust with mineral spirits. Although it’s been several days since I wiped it down, I’m worried about any left over chemical that soaked into the bare wood.
What do I do to avoid any toxicity before applying mineral oil to the board?

First thing to do is quit worrying. Does the board smell like MO? NO? Go ahead and apply the mineral oil.

There’s nothing toxic on or in the board. Mineral spirits flash off in minutes and there’s nothing left behind.

I’ve done the same as you have. I just let it dry for a couple of days to let the smell go away and then oiled as usual.
