Think of all the garlic gloves and onions you’ve chopped on your cutting board. Hundreds, right? And if you give your cutting board a good sniff, we bet the smell will be…potent (especially if you have a wooden board). Here’s the best way to give your board a quick refresh.
You don’t need to go crazy here, you just want enough salt to make step two a little more effective (since salt is an abrasive).
Cut your lemon in half (if you haven’t already), put your cutting board flat on a counter, and give it a thorough scrubbing for a minute or two. Don’t be afraid to lean in! Bonus: The acidity of lemons acts as a mild disinfectant!
Rinse the lemon and salt off in your kitchen sink and let everything dry. Give your cutting board a sniff. Nice and fresh, right?
