Start by wiping down the surface with vinegar and a clean cloth, followed by a similar swipe of hydrogen peroxide to thoroughly disinfect your board. Next, sprinkle a generous amount of salt on the surface. Slice a lemon in half, and rub one of the open ends over the salt, squeezing out the juice as you scrub. Allow the lemon and salt combo to sit for 5 to 10 minutes, and then wipe off with a soft rag. Complete with a coat of mineral oil for a flawless finish.
