Quick Cutting Board Tip

This cutting board and I have seen a lot of meals together.

Some folks have a different board for everything.  But I’m a minimalist, I don’t have a lot of space, and less is always more for me. (I do make an exception for raw meats.  They have a cutting board all to themselves.)

The trouble comes when:

Have you ever eaten an onion flavored pear?


There are two ways I keep my board in odor free condition.

The first is white vinegar.  After use, I pour a little white vinegar on the board and give it a scrub.  Vinegar is a natural disinfectant which gives me peace of mind.

But if the smell of onion is lingering…  I sprinkle the whole board with baking soda and let it sit for about 10 minutes.  Then I scrub it in with a clean soapy cloth.  It makes a sort of a paste as I scrub.  Rinse the whole board and VOILA the board is odor free.

I’ve used this same board happily for many years.  With just a little maintenance my onions and pears can live happily ever after on the same board for many more years to come.
