Your wooden cutting board is so helpful in the kitchen, but if it's too big to wash in the sink, it's a challenge to really clean. Instead of scouring with dish soap, this easy cleaning method uses natural ingredients to safely clean and refresh — in just minutes. You'll love how your cutting board shines and is free of any lurking bacteria.
- Cover your cutting board with a generous sprinkling of table salt and give it a little massage. Along with gently exfoliating the wood, the salt naturally cleans and dislodges any hiding bits of food.
- Now cut a lemon in half and use the cut side to really rub the wooden cutting board. Lemon is naturally antibacterial, making it a supercleaner when it comes to tackling tough jobs. The lemon juice works together with the salt to clean and kill any bacteria from the wood.
- Give the cutting board a wipe using a soft cloth, removing all the salt from the board. Let the board fully dry before the next step.
- To keep your clean cutting board in the best shape, treat it with food-grade mineral oil. Buff onto the board with a paper towel, and enjoy the shine.
