wooden chopping board

There is nothing like a wooden chopping board. And of course, knives do make marks, which can leave little crevasses where food can be left to spoil. So, how do you clean a wooden chopping board?

I was told by a wooden board maker that the best way to care for them is to wash in warm soapy water and dry immediately (don't let drip dry) and every couple of months give it a light oiling with grapeseed oil.
I spray it with a disinfectant, then wipe down with a cloth. If there are any bits in the crevasses, then I'll use a scrub brush to get inside.
I learnt that lemon juice works well, however I still find myself scrubbing the boards with a pot scourer. Just never know!
Great question, as many households do use wooden chopping boards in the kitchen. Soak it, and use disinfectant.
I think you should be careful when cleaning a wooden chopping board since the disinfectant you use to clean the board might stick to it until the next use. And I wouldn't want the food to taste of disinfectant.
soapy water but to be honest, I just whack ours in the dishwaher - who has time for anything else?
I was told to give them a wash with warm soapy water. Then sprinkle some baking soda over the surface to absorb any odours or stains and place it in direct sunlight from time to time.

Don't have WOODEN chopping board.

Have many Plastic ones, which go in dishwasher to be sterile-cleaned.
Lime juice and salt. A good scrubbing then rinse and leave to dry. Then light oil.
