I love my wooden cutting boards. Best gifts ever. I’ve smashed so many garlic cloves into those babies, diced hundreds of onions, seeded tons of tomatoes and they’ve held up pretty darn well. I also take the time to clean them quite often. It’s actually fun and super easy. All you need is Kosher salt and citrus (lemon/lime).
Cover board in salt.
Halve citrus and squeeze.
Rinse and dry.
Apply a tiny bit of oil to lubricate board. (I just use the olive oil I have on hand but I am pretty sure you are to use special mineral oil or something like that, oh well the olive oil works just fine for me.)
Start chopping on your newly cleansed cutting board… or leave the clean kitchen and go out to eat!
