Clean A Cutting Board Using (2) Ingredients

We have a large, round cutting board that sits on the corner of our kitchen island. It only ever gets moved to clean it and clean under it. I use this cutting board multiple times a day. One of the most helpful things I ever did in the kitchen was to keep a large cutting board sitting out on my island, where I prep food. Not having to fiddle in a drawer for a cutting board multiple times a day makes this momma happy. This little corner space works perfectly because it's right beside the trash drawer (in the island), and it's near my stove/oven.

I have other cutting boards stored away that I use for meat/fish, but I always use this cutting board for fruits, veggies, general prep, etc. I have always cleaned it using soap and water just as I do the other dishes. However, we started to notice that our strawberries were tasting like onions! Not good!

I found this pin on Pinterest and saw that the ingredients to clean a cutting board were two ingredients I always have on hand, lemon and Kosher salt.

Grab a 1/2 lemon and rub across your cutting board.

 Add a layer of Kosher salt on top of the lemon. Let stand for 15 minutes.

While you are waiting those 15 minutes, you could scrub your sink using this easy method! When the time is up, take the lemon and scrub the salt into the board.

Lastly, rinse the cutting board, dry, and return to its rightful corner!

This is such an easy and natural way to clean a cutting board. I will be doing this often! My family will thank me that their apple slices no longer taste like cilantro! Thanks @ All Kinds of Yumm!
