    I sure could use some help with this one. Does anyone have tips on how to clean the cuttings boards? Mine are stained and I do wash after each use.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    I put them in the dishwasher. Every so often I spray them with Clorox Clean-up

    Soaking them in bleach water works pretty well.

    I pour a bit of bleach directly onto them, they look like new, for a period of time till I use and stain them up again.

    I put them in the dishwasher and when they are stained I use Soft Scrub with bleach--brush it on with the Easy Clean Kitchen Brush and then let it sit awhile til the stains fade.

    Thanks for the tips. I just tried the bleach and it looks great. Not to mention the Easy Clean Kitchen Brush looks better also.
    Thanks again for the help!!

    My kitchen brush goes in the dishwasher every few cycles.

    If they get real stained and cut up you can take an electric sander to them and make them look brand new. Use extra fine sandpaper for one minute on each side. I've done this with the old one's several times. I haven't needed to do it with the new one. But when I do I'll need to use caution around the grey edges.

    I thought about doing that today after I got the stains out. I do put my cutting board and kitchen brush in the dishwasher but sometimes not all of the stains will come out. Nice to know that the bleach works.
