How to Prevent Stains on a Wooden Cutting Board

Wooden Cutting Boards

A particularly messy knife task (like peeling and slicing beets) can permanently mar a beautiful wooden cutting board. How to eliminate that possibility? Do a deep cleaning. When you’re done cutting, sprinkle the board with coarse salt (such as kosher), and massage the salt into the board with the cut side of half a lemon. The acid in the juice will disinfect and deodorize; the salt will act as an abrasive, sloughing off bits of food and small stains. Rinse the board with hot water, towel-dry, and set it upright to dry completely.

And remember: Never put a wooden cutting board in the dishwasher. The harsh cleaning process could warp and crack it.

  2. garage doors

    You have just built an attached garage with a foundation in the Sims 3, but a few finishing touches are
    needed. It often comes in two varieties one with
    dual flexible sides and one that has a hard side and a flexible side
    that looks a lot like wood molding. Just as you did before, watch for any glowing
    items, since you’ll want to be able to build a new lock
    grinder in a moment.
