For your family’s health, you should regularly clean and disinfect your plastic or wooden chopping boards. Especially because these can be easily stained by various food.
To get your chopping boards looking like new again, give them a once a month spa treatment. I’d like to share something that works for me.
All I need are lemons and salt. Calamansi works, too!
Here’s what I do:
1. Sprinkle salt on the chopping board.
2. Using lemon, squeeze the juice and scrub the surface of the chopping board.
3. Leave for 20 minutes, and then scrape away the grey dirty liquid.
4. Rinse the chopping board with a clean sponge.
The acid of the lemon works on the tough food stains while the salt helps exfoliate the surface.
