How do you clean a cutting board

Mine is all stained and I don't want to buy a new one. Suggestions?

Put it in a dishwasher.

Buy a new freakin' cutting board, for the love of....

I assume it's plastic if it's stained. Bleach and water as hot as you can get it for a thorough rinse.

If it is wooden I have heard lemon juice or vinegar is beneficial although I'm not entirely sure that a mild soap solution would be bad. Otherwise you could try baking soda and thoroughly rinse with hot water or baking soda and vinegar together to sort of foam off the dirt.

Which ones are better to get, wooden or not? I have heard that wooden ones can get full of bacteria.

R5 is right.

R6, get a bamboo cutting board.

Just buy a new one, they're not expensive.

Wood or plastic, bacteria gets stuck in both of them. Even though you can sanitize plastic boards, you can't sanitize it 100% because of all the crevices formed when you use it. Personally, I use a plastic for meat and wood for veggies. You should have two cutting boards to prevent cross contamination

Put it out in the sun one day.


The sun can get red of vegetable stains -- red, orange, and green -- like nobody's business.

It's amazing.

R9 is a liar. It will actually "set" the stains.

Not lying, r10.

And you are flat wrong.

I do this all the time & it works.

P.S. Gargle some strychnine.

I let the dog lick it.

R9 / R11 is not only a liar, but an asshole to boot.

Banal bleaching

Wash it with ordinary white vinegar. Vinegar is a non-toxic anti-bacterial agent.

Like r15 I use white vinegar. But I don't keep them too long and usually have about three or four of different sizes. I don't just use them for cutting and chopping though.
