How To: Clean a wooden cutting board

Clean a wooden cutting board

A cutting board is essential — even if you only ever cut drink garnishes, slicing limes on a dormroom desk is pretty gross.

You Will Need

* A wooden cutting board
* Hot water
* Dishwashing liquid
* Sponge
* Coarse salt
* A lemon cut in half
* A clean, dry towel
* A drying rack or clean surface to lean against
* Fine-grained sandpaper (optional)
* Food-safe mineral oil (optional)

Never leave your wooden cutting board in water—the wood can split. If you are drying more than one board, do not stack them.
