Wood and wooden boards
Wooden chopping boards, wooden cooking spoons and rolling pins should always be cleaned with hot soapy water. As a natural alternative, you could also use coarse sea salt and a little lemon juice for cleaning wood. Rubbing wood with this mixture has been proven to be effective, even in instances of discolouration. It is important always to let the cutting boards dry off properly, as most of the germs will be killed off if you deprive them of their moist breeding ground. If your wooden board needs a little more care, you can sand down the top later and saturate the board with food-safe oil after cleaning. After it has taken effect, you can rub off any excess oil with a cotton cloth.
