#TuesdayTip – Fresh & Clean Cutting Board with Lemon Essential Oil

#TuesdayTip - Clean & Sanitize your Cutting Board with Lemon Essential Oil | Healthy, Fit & Barefoot

Today’s tip is a quick and easy one that will have your cutting board (I only have a plastic one) clean and sanitized! I’m not quite sure which cutting boards are the best, but all I have is a white plastic one and it’s been used pretty heavily. I feel like after I cut chicken on it, that it really needs a good scrubbing and sanitizing so I started using lemon, sea salt and lemon essential oil and my cutting board is naturally sanitized with the lemon essential oil and it smells super clean and fresh every time I use it!


I just simply use half of a lemon and sprinkle sea salt on the cutting board and on top of the lemon. I also put 3 drops of lemon essential oil on my cutting board, then rub the lemon with sea salt all over my cutting board. The lemon essential oil is antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral so it’s excellent for disinfecting.


Rinse with hot water and let air dry. That’s it! Simple & effective!


I hope you enjoyed and find today’s #TuesdayTip useful!
