Clean cutting board tips and tricks!

You’ve just finished gathering the materials to cook dinner in your new home. Your friends are on their way over for a fun filled night in this new environment, but somethings off. Your cutting boards needed for this home cooked meal are looking used and iffy, how did they get this bad? How can you prevent this from happening again? With these simple and easy steps, you can keep your cutting boards in top shape and not have to worry about anything during those home cooked meals! Homemade paste! (not for eating) -Combining a tablespoon of basking soda, one tablespoon of salt and one tablespoon water, you can create a DIY paste. Scrub away with your hearts content and you’ll get grime gone in not time! Lemon and Salt method (eat if desired) -Easy and great smelling option! Get a lemon, and some normal table salt. Sprinkle the salt in hefty amounts across the cutting board, then cut the lemon in half and with the open cut face, rub it across the cutting board! Rinse with water when done and voila! Paper towel trick (refrain from eating) -Use two paper towels, a little vinegar and some hydrogen peroxide. Lightly wet one paper towel with vinegar and wipe the board. Dampen the second paper towel with 3% hydrogen peroxide and wipe the board again. Done! Heavy Duty (not FDA approved) -Especially helpful when just finished cutting seafood or any meats.  Take one teaspoon of bleach and two quarts of water. Cover the board with the bleach and let it sit for a few minutes to penetrate the overlaying bacteria. Rinse thoroughly afterwards. Speedy method! (undecided) – Take the completely dry cutting board, sprinkle salt across the surface, scrub with a warm water sponge and BAM, stains are gone!   We care about your family and your cutting boards, not to mention your homes!
