A wooden cutting board is probably one of the most used items in your kitchen. They come in so many shapes and sizes, that these boards can even be decorative. The biggest problem though is the fact that they can be so hard to clean and dry. Use these smart tips to make your kitchen life much easier.

Try Vinegar

Vinegar is such a magical liquid that can solve so many problems. If it can clean bathrooms, it can also clean your wooden cutting board. The vinegar will get to all the smallest cuts, while also destroying bacteria. Since you are using this board to cut a variety of foods, you want to be sure that there are no bacteria that can be transferred.

Don’t Soak It

Don’t ever let the board soak in water! It can cause damage and you won’t be able to repair.

Don’t Wash It In The Dishwasher

These boards are not made to be washed in the dishwasher. Always wash them by hand. The heat from the dishwasher can easily destroy the board, so you will not be able to use it anymore.

Baking Soda

Baking soda is another efficient way to clean a wooden cutting board. You should not do this every single time, but once every several uses.
