Cutting Board Hacks: Clever Tips and Tricks for Everyday Use

Cutting boards/Chopping boards & serving boards are essential tools in any kitchen, but did you know there are simple hacks to keep them clean, odour-free, and in top condition? In this blog, we’ll explore some clever tips and tricks to elevate your various board games.

Use Separate Cutting Boards for Different Foods

To prevent cross-contamination, designate separate cutting boards for different food categories, such as meats, vegetables, fruits, and bread. This practice reduces the risk of harmful bacteria spreading from raw foods to ready-to-eat items. Invest in colour-coded or labelled boards for easy identification.

Sanitise with White Vinegar

For a natural and effective sanitiser, use white vinegar to clean your cutting board. Simply spray or pour white vinegar onto the board’s surface, ensuring full coverage. Let it sit for a few minutes to kill bacteria, then rinse with hot water and dry thoroughly. White vinegar is a powerful disinfectant that’s safe for use on cutting boards and other kitchen surfaces.

Invest in Quality Materials

Opt for high-quality materials such as wood, bamboo, or plastic when choosing a cutting board. These materials are durable, resistant to knife marks, and less likely to harbour bacteria than porous surfaces. Avoid glass or marble boards, as they can dull knife blades and are prone to chipping.
