I use baking soda and/or vinegar to clean my cutting board. Occasionally I oil it with cooking oil. I have used the same hand made wooden cutting board for over 40 years, and it is still in good condition.

If your wooden cutting board is smelling strong after cutting up onions or garlic, moisten a paper towel or rag with white vinegar and wipe it clean. It won't even smell like vinegar when it dries.

This works. We have a butcher block counter and wipe down the cutting space with vinegar after each use. It keeps it clean.

I would have preferred using a plastic dishwasher safe cutting board but since this was already in the house, it has come in handy. (02/20/2005)

Sprinkle salt on the wood board. Then rub the salt with a lemon half. This will clean your wooden board like magic. (09/05/2005)

I just wash mine in warm soapy water. This also kills the bacteria that hang out on wood boards. (04/26/2006)
