Your bamboo cutting board needs some special care and maintenance to ensure that it lasts and remains clean and free of germs and bacteria.
A bamboo cutting board is similar to any wooden cutting board; it needs to be scrubbed thoroughly with warm soapy water to remove excess foods and juices after each use.
Choosing a Bamboo Cutting Board
When you decide which bamboo cutting board is right for you, make sure that you properly care for it. There are many styles and sizes to choose from, you can find many that are patterned to give a more attractive appeal to them.
You should never use your bamboo cutting board to cut raw meats, such as chicken, the bacteria and germs can hide in the grooves of the bamboo cutting board and cause it to contaminate your other foods. You do not want to risk getting your family sick, so a glass or marble cutting board may be a better solution than a bamboo cutting board for those uses.
