Refresh Your Cutting Boards with Lemon

Large_istock_000059341114_large

WHY DO THIS?


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.

EASY

Complete this To-Do and make progress towards the Lemon Wizard Achievement!

What You'll Need:

  • table salt
  • half a lemon
  • stinky cutting board

How To:

  1. 1

    Sprinkle Your Cutting Board with Salt

    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).

  2. 2

    Scrub with the Lemon

    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!

  3. 3

    Wash and Let Dry

    Rinse the lemon and salt off in your kitchen sink and let everything dry. Give your cutting board a sniff. Nice and fresh, right?
