Clean a Cutting Board:

There are many argue say people always obsesses when choosing the plastic vs wood cutting boards, someone thinks, plastic board is more prone to bacteria, because it's surface is not porous, but compared to wooden type, it has not enough condition to reproduce when bacteria penetrate into the surface, while, wooden board are quite different, because it was a natural material, bacteria are more prone to increase and increase when it get into the surface. in another reason, plastic board is normally made of chemosynthesis material, manufacturers like to add anti-bacterial additives into the board, which can help killing the bacteria promptly, but wood board can’t do it like plastic. But I can’t recommend which choice is better, perhaps, different person have different idea in choosing plastic or wooden board,

Wooden Boards

There are variety of woods used in making chopping boards. Out of them, the most popular one is maple woodcutting board. However, regardless of which wood is used to make the chopping block you own, the following cleaning tips should be administered.

•To clean, place drain stopper in the kitchen sink and fill it halfway with hot water. Wear rubber gloves and add 2 squirts of dishwashing soap.

•Use one hand to mix the soap in water properly and place the board in. Take a Scotch-Brite and scrub the surface of the board.

•Once done, unplug the stopper so the soapy water drains. Turn the hot water tap on and rinse the board thoroughly.

•To sanitize, again place the stopper and fill the sink halfway with hot water. Mix in 1 tablespoon chlorine bleach with the water.

•Submerge the wooden board completely in the bleach water and leave it in for about 10 minutes. Rinse under hot water and leave the board in the sun to dry completely.

•If you don't want to use bleach, then add some lemon juice into the hot water and submerge the wooden board in it.

•Rinse the board properly, let it dry completely, and then use it.
