Have your cutting boards made of plastic had enough? Find out how to clean stains off cutting boards made of plastic using hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and dishwashing soap. Green, easy cleaning tutorial.
I have an all-white plastic cutting board which I use for cutting poultry and meat. It’s very easy to store and is easily put in the dishwasher to make it easy to clean and disinfection.
The negatives of plastic cutting boards is that they are not as durable…. They appear to fade or stained after some weeks (or months or) of usage.
Oh my god, I hate the disgusting brown spots that aren’t scrubbable off!
Happily, I’ve found two ways to clean the stains off of cutting boards made of plastic, with no bleach required!
HOW TO REMOVE STAINS FROM PLASTIC CUTTING BOARDS
There are two simple methods to get rid of stains on cutting boards:
Hydrogen peroxide soak.
Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide and dishwashing paste.
USE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE TO REMOVE CUTTING BOARD STAINS
Plain old 3% hydrogen peroxide will bleach away cutting board stains if given enough dwell time.
Lay the cutting board in a sink.
Spray or pour hydrogen peroxide over the cutting board until it is wet.
Allow the hydrogen peroxide to soak for several hours or overnight. (You should see the stain lighten considerably.)
Wash the cutting board with detergent and water, allow to dry.
