How to Remove Stains From a Bamboo Cutting Board
30 July 04

Bamboo cutting boards have the natural beauty and durability of wood, as well as green signs of environmental protection. Bamboo is a sustainable resource that makes it the material of choice for kitchen products in environmentally friendly chefs. However, like other wood chopping boards, bamboo boards are not suitable for washing in dishwashers, and they are used to break up brightly colored foods such as berries that can be stained. There is no need to resort to harsh, toxic cleaning agents to remove stains from bamboo; the proper cleaning method is as green as the circuit board itself.



Dampen the stain with clean water. Covering the area with kosher salt, the stain can be sucked out of the bamboo. Let the salt sit overnight and then rinse it in the morning.


If the stain is still visible, mix more salt with water to form a paste. Dip the paste onto the toothbrush and brush it with a stain. Rinse the plate. Repeat until the stain disappears or the process stops producing an effect.


Thoroughly clean the cardboard with mild detergent and hot water to remove any remaining salt. Let the board do it.


If all other methods fail, gently wipe the area with fine sandpaper. Use food-grade mineral oil to flavor the food, return the bamboo to its original condition, and protect it from future contamination.

Things You Will Need

*Clean salt


*Soft cleaning agent

*Fine sandpaper

*mineral oil


Every month, oil the bamboo cutting board with mineral oil at least once to keep the surface.

If you come into contact with berries, coffee grounds, tea leaves or other items that can contaminate bamboo, please wash the chopping board in time.
