CLEANING is a part of life. 

But there is a right way and a wrong way and we’re here to tell you that you have been cleaning your chopping board the wrong way. 


Wood can be a breeding ground for bacteria and it soaks up juices. 

That’s why they are easily stained. 

This can be particularly dangerous when you only have a chopping board for different food. 

Items such as raw meat when mixed with other foods can easily spread bacteria.

Then she sprinkles over baking soda. 

After this she get a lemon cut into two halves and squeezes the juices over the sprinkled chopping board.

Holli wait about 10 seconds whilst the lemon and baking soad react. 

This is important so dont skip it. 

The Holli uses half a lemon to scrub the pasty bubbly mixture into her chopping board. 

The lemon helps kill any bacteria and the gritty baking soda acts as an abrasive.

After scrubbing Holli washes the lemon and baking soda of with hot water. 

It’s probably best to give the chopping board a quick once over with washing up liquid and a sponge as well.

The video has now gone viral with over 7.6 million views and 463,000 likes.

Viewers were very impressed with Holli’s cleaning tip.
