Kitchen Cutting Board Cleaning Tips
When it comes to preparing your dishes, kitchen cutting boards are essential. No kitchen is said to be complete without this tool on hand since its flat surface makes it the perfect place to chop, slice, and dice ingredients fast and easy. But, is rinsing with water enough? Does it take care of the bacteria that might have infected the board’s surface? Here are some cleaning tips for your kitchen cutting board. For kitchen wooden cutting board, place drain stopper in the kitchen sink and fill it halfway with hot water. Wear rubber gloves and add 2 squirts of dishwashing soap. Use one hand to mix the soap in water properly and place the cutting board in. Take a Scotch-Brite and scrub the surface of the board. Once done, unplug the stopper so the soapy water drains. Turn the hot water tap on and rinse the board thoroughly.
To sanitize, again place the stopper and fill the sink halfway with hot water. Mix in 1 tablespoon chlorine bleach with the water. Submerge the wooden board completely in the bleach water and leave it in for about 10 minutes. Rinse under hot water and leave the board in the sun to dry completely. For kitchen plastic cutting board, take a sponge and wipe the board after every use. With a plastic brush, scrub the surface of the cutting board. First, fill the sink with hot water with few squirts of dishwashing soap. Submerge the board in and scrub with the plastic brush.
