You will need the following items to help make this job easy and quick:
Dish Washing Liquid
Nylon Sponge
Lemon Wedge (Half of a lemon cut in half again works best)
Kosher Salt
3% Hydrogen Peroxide
Rubber Gloves
Step One:
Place the cutting board under mild hot water to wash away any large pieces of food.
Pour dishwashing liquid on a nylon sponge.
Rub it thoroughly against the cutting board to remove any hidden traces of food. Rinse and let it stand in the sink or dish tray to dry.
Step Two:
Disinfect and clean your cutting board by treating it with a solution of one part vinegar and two
parts water.
Pour the mixture on the cutting board and let it soak the surface for 8 to 10 minutes.
Rinse well with hot water. Let it air dry by placing it in a slanted position.
Step Three:
Sprinkle salt on the cutting board after every use. Take a lemon wedge and rub it on the board. The salt and lemon juice will react to remove all odors from the surface. Rinse under hot water and dry.
Step Four:
Use 3 percent hydrogen peroxide to clean your cutting board. Dip a piece of clean cloth in vinegar and wipe the surface of the board. Proceed by wiping the board with another cloth dipped in hydrogen peroxide. Let it stand for at least 10 minutes. Rinse well with warm soapy water and dry
