Keep your wooden or plastic chopping board clean by scrubbing it once a month with a paste made from equal amount of baking soda, salt, and water. Rinse thoroughly with hot water.

If your chopping board smells after you chop onions, crush garlic or cut raw meat and chicken, you can get rid of the odour and help sanitise the chopping board by sprinkling salt on the board and rubbing it all over with the cut side of half a lemon.
