Keeping Your Cutting Board Clean

When you decide what the best cutting board material is for you, it is imperative that you understand how to keep it clean. Here are some tips to that can keep the sterile nature and aesthetic beauty of your cutting boards.

-After cutting anything, especially meat, it is essential to wash thoroughly. Over time, cuts may appear in the board and can make it easier for bacteria to build up if not properly sanitized.


-Scrubbing your cutting board thoroughly helps remove particles left over from food. Along with scrubbing, hot, soapy water is often used to sanitize.

-Bacteria thrive with moisture. Leave your cutting board to stand up so it can air dry. 

-When washing cutting boards, it is best to use running water from the tap and not water that is still in the sink.

-Try using a different cutting board for different foods types. This will help reduce cross contamination.
