Hi, kids! I hope you all had a good weekend. Mine was super busy and I didn't even have
time to post a weekend Tip. Now it's time to scroll on down and check out Today's Tip.


CLEAN YOUR CUTTING BOARD

Do you have a wood cutting board? If so, it probably has a lot of scratches and gouges on it
and it's home to lots of bacteria.

Don't use abrasive cleaners or harsh chemicas on your cutting board. Instead, mix hydrogen
peroxide and vinegar and use that to scrub your cutting board. Then rinse and dry it. That
will clean it up quite nicely and make it safe for future use.

Happy cooking!

I have some pretty wooden cutting boards but wont use them because I don't want them all scratched up. Good to know what to do if they do get scratched. Thanks!!!

Well.... we've gotten rid of out wooden cutting boards. We now have various nylon types. I'll tell my daughter they have some of the old pizza slider/spatula boards. They use those for cutting boards at times. Thanks Pam!

Fantastic tip, Pam!!! That's what I do to all my wooden cutting boards, utensils and mixing bowls.

Extra tip:
After you clean cutting boards and breadboards with peroxide, rub them with a damp cloth dipped in salt. The boards will be lighter and brighter in color.
You can also use vinegar to disinfect your cutting boards: the acetic acid in the vinegar is a good disinfectant, effective against such harmful bugs as E. coli, Salmonella, and Staphylococcus.

Did you know?:
Never use water and dishwashing detergent, because it can weaken surface wood fibers.
