how to naturally clean a wood cutting board

I use my wood cutting boards for everything, which is why it is important to know the proper way to clean them. I not only want them to look clean, but I want them to BE clean and disinfected.



There are several ways to clean a cutting board naturally. Here are my top 3. 

Vinegar: 

Vinegar contains acetic acid that will disinfect your cutting board and prevent against common food-related sicknesses such as Salmonella and E. coli. Simply pour vinegar over your cutting board and scrub in with a clean rag. This will also eliminate any odors the board may have.


Lemons:

Lemons are great for getting the smells off a cutting board such as onions, garlic, and or raw and cooked meat or fish.
Simply cut a lemon in half and rub it all over your board, and pat dry. The citric acid in lemons will not sanitize your cutting board, but it will remove odors.


 Baking soda:

You can make a paste out of baking soda and water, or use a half lemon and baking soda. Baking soda is non-toxic and safe to use on cutting boards. It has a mild alkali and can dissolve dirt and grease easily in water. After scrubbing your board, simply rinse off in hot water and pat dry.


After your cutting boards are clean and dry, try displaying them by hanging one, or a grouping of them on the wall of your kitchen!
