care of cutting boards.,
This review is from: Totally Bamboo Original 3 Piece Bamboo Cutting & Serving Board Set. (Kitchen)
I have a set of these cutting boards. However most boards need proper care. Never put them in the dishwasher. I clean mine with a qt size spray bottle with 1/2 teaspoon bleach in it. I spray the board then sprinkle my cheapest salt on the board and then scrub rinse with warm water and then dry well with a towel. After dry once a week I wipe them down with food grade mineral oil on a cloth wash cloth. Not to worry as they have mineral oil in every grocery store or drug store. This will keep all of your cutting boards in good shape. I use certain boards for meat and others for veggies. I write with a marker on the side so I am never confused which is which. They will last for years and years. I have a board that was my Great Grandmothers that I use for veggies only and it still is a good board. I also have a board that I use for making bread pizza dough an pastries. This set I use for fish and one for sandwiches, one for one meat. They say we should do this and that is why I bought this set. Thinking of getting a few more sets to give as gifts. Hope this helps everyone.

Starmagic "Star," Thank you for taking your time to share this information with us! Very helpful and appreciated! Naturally, I'm wondering now if this would still be effective if it was tinkered with a bit... such as, could a vegetable oil replace the mineral oil? I suspect the term "food grade" is on the label, but is this different from regular drugstore "mineral oil?" I find I have a lot to learn, too, about salt!! Are different kinds of salt available in bulk at stores? (No, I'm not kidding... I used to cook quite a lot, and take really good care of cutting boards, etc., but other responsibilities have gotten in the way...) Many thanks, again, Star; you truly shine for us all!! Callie

Thanks Star for the tips on how to care for the cutting boards. I also keep my veggies and meats on separate boards. I use the bamboo cutting boards for veggies and the different color plastic cutting boards for my meat produce.
Thanks again, the tips are most helpful

I must say the reviews are on point for these boards. These are really nice cutting boards for this price! The 3 sizes accommodate all types of cutting jobs, meat, veggies, sandwiches... My favorite feature is the weight, not to heavy not to light, A solid buy. I purchased them to to go along with my new ceramic bread knife, both great Amazon buys!

Hi Starmagic, I know it's a while since you wrote your review. But if you should see this, I would like to know why the bleach and salt. I never heard of this before. You sound as if you know what you're doing, so please share your knowledge. Thanks! (PS: I know bleach is a disinfectant, but isn't soap and hot water, etc., effective? There are also special "soaps" for cutting boards. I find all this confusing.)
