Clean Wooden Cutting Boards Naturally

Clean Your Cutting Board Naturally With Just 2 Ingredients

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Keep your board in its best shape by following these helpful wooden cutting-board care tips.
