iving the whole food lifestyle means pursuing the cleanest, truest forms of living. From the food we put in our mouths to the water we drink and products we use. I am proud to say I've abandoned a lot of unhealthy methods and tools, including getting rid of my plastic sheet cutting mats that harbored bacteria and chemicals. I love using wood cutting boards. They look beautiful. I have one in particular that resembles a checkerboard of different woods with the grain going different directions. It resembles a piece of art. But how do I take care of it?
When I used plastic cutting boards or mats, I would soak them in bleach water in the sink with a drizzle of dish soap. I'm sure that killed some built up bacteria, but as I look back, I shake my head wondering why would I ever use bleach in the same location that my food touches?! Yikes. But what do I use to clean my wooden cutting boards?
Then I found Kristen at LiveSimply.me. She claims to LOVE cleaning. I'm not sure if we could ever be friends LOL. To me, cleaning is one of those things that I know has to be done, I procrastinate, contemplate, deliberate ... and finally .... delegate! Making the mess is so much more fun than cleaning it up. But thanks to Live Simply, I can feel good about how I clean my cutting boards .... or how I ask my kids to clean my cutting boards!
Thank you Kristen at Live Simply for your dedication to sharing your passion of natural cleaning.
