Life hack: clean your cutting board naturally

A plastic cutting board is easy to clean, you just throw it in the dishwasher. Unfortunately, wooden cutting boards are a bit more complicated. To keep the cutting board clean and disinfected, use a simple lemon and salt scrub on the surface of the board. It will help kill off any remaining germs and neutralise odours. Plus, this all natural and simple solution requires no expensive and chemically laden cleaning supplies!

Check out the instructions below.
