Today, I'd like to share with you the way I've been cleaning my wood cutting board over the past few years. After
splitting one too many wood cutting boards in the dishwasher several mishaps in my earlier apartment-living years, I discovered a non-toxic way to thoroughly clean away all food residue from the wood surface (even raw meat).
I use two ingredients: lemon and sea salt.
Lemons make incredible disinfectants (in addition to stain removers and metal polishers!) and I like to keep 5-10 of them in my kitchen at all time.
I sprinkle the sea salt chunks on the board, cut the lemon in half, squeeze the juice out, and start scrubbing. Once I've scrubbed the whole surface, I wipe it down with a damp cloth and my cutting board is ready for its next adventure!
