First use wooden cutting board
Clean it properly before using it for the first time. Wood needs detergents that respect its porosity. Wash it by immersing it for 5 minutes in hot water, or clean it thoroughly using hot water and a sponge. Before using it you can also treat it with seed oil. Repeat the operation the next day. A good habit is to treat it with seed oil at least twice a year.
Cleaning and maintenance Wooden cutting board
Don't wash it in the dishwasher and don't use chemicals, as the wood is porous. Clean it rapidly after each use, to avoid odors and liquid absorbing. Remove food residues with a brush, then clean it with warm water and a few drops of castile soap. You can use a sponge to clean if it is particularly dirt, then rinse with warm water and dry with a clean cloth.
Maintenance of the wooden cutting board
Deeper cleaning: use coarse salt together with a lemon cut in half, which you have to rub inside. Faster cleaning: use vinegar. Apply a few drops, scrub with a sponge and rinse with warm water.
Other methods: Using baking soda and lemon juice can also help.
In any case, after cleaning, always let it dry, if possible, in the open air and in a vertical position, to take advantage of the sanitizing action of the sun's rays and avoid the formation of mold.
