When I looked at my cutting board, I noticed it was looking a little worn and dried out. Rather than buying a new one, I decided to disinfect and condition the one I have. It was a simple process that took very little time.
First, I cut a lemon in half, then sprinkled the board with kosher salt, and rubbed the cut lemon and salt over the entire surface. I repeated this process on the other side and washed the board with hot water and dishwashing detergent.
After the board dried, I rubbed Boos Block Board Cream (I’ve read that mineral oil can also be used) onto both sides and allowed it to dry overnight. The next day, I removed the excess cream using a paper towel. Now it looks almost as good as new!
