3. Disinfect Wood Cutting Boards
Wood cutting boards are preferred by many chefs, but they definitely have their downside.
In fact, even washing a wood cutting board as carefully as possible can leave bacteria behind in the grooves and pores that become worn into the surface over time. As cutting boards age, larger grooves tend to open up, allowing some very hard to scrub divots where some very nasty bacteria can set up shop.
Therefore, you need to disinfect the board regularly. For this proven method, don’t mix vinegar with water. Simply wipe with plain vinegar to disinfect wood cutting boards and neutralize odors.
