  • Wooden chopping board

Always keep the hygiene of your wooden chopping board at check. Clean it thoroughly with the help of coarse sea salt and lemon. Simply sprinkle the sea salt on your chopping board and rub the surface with half a lemon. Finally, wipe the residue off and care for your board by oiling it. Spread edible oil over your board and wipe it with a paper towel. The main reason for oiling is for wood fibers to absorb the oil, preventing your board from soaking up other liquid that comes in contact.

Tip: Whenever your wooden board appears dry, oil them and keep them lasting forever.

  • Metal surfaces such as copper and stainless steel

To polish metal kitchenware, similar steps follow through. Soak half a lemon in a bowl filled with coarse salt and water and rub the metal surface with the solution. A polished metal surface awaits you!
