How Do You Sanitize a Cutting Board?

You should always sanitize a cutting board before cooking to avoid cross-contamination. Do this by wiping the board down with white vinegar or 3% hydrogen peroxide. Let the solution sit for 5 to 10 minutes and then wipe it away with a clean towel.

Do not overlook this important step. Research from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found that the tiny cracks in wood cutting boards will eventually absorb bacteria. If the board is not properly sanitized, these hidden germs could cause you to get sick.

How Do You Clean a Cutting Board?

According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), you should use hot water and soap to clean a cutting board. Vinegar can also be used to kill bacteria and mold.

A few other general tips for washing a cutting board:

Avoid the Dishwasher

How to Clean a Wood Cutting Board Top

Wood cutting boards are more difficult to clean than plastic, but it’s worth the effort since they’re so sanitary and durable to use. Plus, the natural look adds a nice, rustic touch to any kitchen!

Follow these steps to clean a wood cutting board:

  1. Figure out what type of wood was used to make your board.
  2. Rinse in the sink with hot water.
  3. Clean the front and back with soap.
  4. Dry on a drying rack.
  5. Scrub the board with lemon.
  6. Disinfect using white vinegar or 3% hydrogen peroxide.
  7. Season with food-safe mineral oil.
  1. Step One: Determine the Wood Type

    Step One Determine the Wood Type

    Start by figuring out which type of wood you’re cleaning. Maple is the most popular since it’s resistant to bacteria, but cherry, ash, mahogany, oak, hickory, cypress, acacia, or walnut are also common. The more you know about how the board is made, the better you can clean it.

  2. Step Two: Rinse the Board

    Step Two Rinse the Board

    You’ll need to always use hot water to get the board properly cleaned. Start off by rinsing away any food or debris still on top.

  3. Step Three: Clean With Soap

    Step Three Clean With Soap

    Pour liquid soap on a microfiber cloth to clean both sides of the board. You should use a rag that’s soft, so the wood doesn’t get scratched while cleaning.

  4. Step Four: Dry on a Drying Rack

    Step Four Dry on a Drying Rack

    Too much water can destroy the wood, making this step an important one! Immediately use a cloth to dry after washing and then set the board vertically on a drying rack. Do not move on to the next step until the board is 100% dry.

  5. Step Five: Scrub With Lemon

    Step Five Scrub With Lemon

    After the board is dry, cover it in salt and use a lemon half to scrub. The acid helps remove the stains, and as a bonus, makes your board smell lemony fresh!

  6. Step Six: Disinfect With White Vinegar

    Step Six Disinfect With White Vinegar

    White vinegar is acidic, making it a great disinfectant. Use it to get rid of any germs that may still be lurking on the surface. Are you out of white vinegar? You can also put 3% hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle and spritz it on top.

  7. Step Seven: Oil the Board

    Step Seven Oil the Board

    According to Consumer Reports, you should use food-safe mineral oil to season a wood cutting board. Let it soak for 2 to 3 hours and then remove with a paper towel.

The oil works as a sealant, preventing the wood from absorbing liquids. This matters since too much water can damage the material, or worse, cause bacteria or mold to grow.

*Disclaimer: Quality Logo Products® is not responsible for any damage caused by washing your wood cutting boards. Ask the manufacturer for specific cleaning instructions.

What Do You Oil a Cutting Board With?

What Do You Oil a Cutting Board With?

What Do You Oil a Cutting Board With?

You should always use a food-safe mineral oil to season cutting boards. Leave it on overnight and wipe down with a clean towel the next day. Do not use canola, vegetable, sunflower, olive, or any other cooking oil.

It’s important to oil your cutting boards. A conditioned board will not absorb moisture, and as a result, is less likely to retain food odors, become stained by water spots, or grow mold or bacteria.

  2. Step Two: Wash With Soap

    Step Two Wash With Soap

Do I Need Separate Cutting Boards for Meat and Vegetables?

Do I Need Separate Cutting Boards for Meat and Vegetables?

Do I Need Separate Cutting Boards for Meat and Vegetables?

To avoid cross-contamination, it’s best to use separate cutting boards for each food group. Raw meat should be separate from cooked meat. It should also never come into contact with fruits, veggies, dairy, or eggs.

Dedicate one cutting board to each of the following:

  • Chicken
  • Beef
  • Seafood
  • Pork
  • Turkey
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Dairy
  • Eggs

Produce accounts for 50% of all foodborne illnesses in the U.S., while meat accounts for 22%. Your risk of getting sick greatly decreases when you use separate cutting boards.

Color code your cutting boards so you don’t get confused. You can also stick laminated labels on the top.

Pro Tip

Experts recommend using a plastic cutting board for fish and raw meat. These foods often slip into cracks, dents, or holes in wood or bamboo boards.

How to Store Cutting Boards Top

Material

Material

Some chefs swear by bamboo, while others love plastic. It’s really up to you which material is best, so check reviews and get opinions ahead of time.

The ideal cutting board will last for years. Shell out a few extra bucks to ensure quality, especially if you’re going to frequently use a knife to cut on the board.

Hole

Rectangle cutting boards are most common, but you can also buy round boards for pizzas or half-circles with wrist rests. There are even novelty boards shaped to look like anything you can imagine!

Non-Slip

Do you plan on serving cheese and crackers on your cutting board? Buy one with a handle to easily move the food from the kitchen.

Juice Trench

Juice Trench

Apples, beef, salmon, and oranges are just some of the messiest foods to slice. If you eat these foods often, look for a cutting board with a built-in juice trench, which makes cleanup way easier!

Stats for Success

Stats for Success

According to Fine Cooking Magazine, 20% of U.S. adults admit to using a cutting board for other foods immediately after touching raw meat or poultry.

Stats for Success

The National Health Service reports that cutting boards can harbor 200% more bacteria than a toilet seat.

Stats for Success

1 in 6 Americans experience a foodborne illness every year. Many of these cases are due to poor hygiene while prepping meals.

The Bottom Line

Even if your culinary skills are limited to boxed mac ‘n’ cheese and PBJ’s, you’re still going to need a cutting board at some point. Take care of yours, and every meal will seem like five-star dining!
