I headed to my neighborhood butcher one night right before they closed and caught the butcher cleaning his butcher block. I sat and listened to his wisdom about this ancient process of cleaning the nice bamboo and wood cutting boards. This is super cheap and you most likely have all the ingredients in your home.
The salt gets into any of those chop marks in the wood where bacteria gets trapped, and the lemon and salt both have antibacterial properties. For me, this is now a biweekly ritual. Hope you enjoy!
Oh and p.s. If you have a plastic cutting board, do your self a favor and trash that and invest in a nice wood or bamboo one this is much better on the wear of your knifes edge. Your knives will thank you!
