Whenever I cook, the first two things I always grab are a knife and a cutting board.

Unless you’re pouring something straight from a bag or box into a pot, most people who cook use these two basic tools in almost everything they prepare.

Even if you’re not using a knife, like in the case of peeling a piece of ginger with a spoon, you’ll most likely need a cutting board.

We use a cutting board in almost everything we cook at home, which means that it tends to get dirtier than our other kitchen gadgets. And sure, we scrub it with a sponge after every use, but how do we truly know our cutting boards are getting squeaky clean?

The best way to achieve ultimate cutting board cleanliness is by disinfecting it. But do you want a bunch of chemicals of the surface we prepare most of our meals on? Of course not!

But not to worry, we here at LittleThings have found an all-natural way to disinfect your cutting board in just two easy minutes.
