First, hand clean the cutting board with soap and warm water. You can use white vinegar as a sanitizer. Mix one tablespoon of white vinegar per one gallon of water. Spray three percent hydrogen peroxide on the cutting board after rinsing the white vinegar. Let the hydrogen peroxide soak for 7-10 minutes, then rinse and dry with a towel. Using peroxide is an extra precaution. You do not need to do it for every use.
Lately, I have noticed my cutting board smells like an onion! Use a lemon to get the smell out. Rub the lemon on the board, or use lemon juice with a rag if you don't have a lemon. Baking Soda is another alternative to use to remove the smell from the cutting board. Rub the baking soda on the board and let it stand for about five minutes, then rinse well.
