How to get rid of black cutting board mildew
30 July 04

Many years ago, I had a small chopping board, a bit like a joke gift. However, the surroundings are already very convenient. Just as you can see the scars, it is well used.

The scars did not bother me, but because I never put any black mold on the board to protect the oil.

This has been bothering me for some time, but for some reason I decided I really need to deal with it yesterday.


I explored on the Internet, looking for patches, and some people recommend using bleach solutions.


So, I poured a bleach solution into a glass and soaked a moldy wooden shovel handle as a test, and it was almost unsuccessful.


Then I tried to bleach directly without even doing anything.


At that time, I decided to do something more powerful, so I dug out my hand sander and started working.

I made a big mess, but it really didn't take too long to break this situation. The difference is very incredible.

There is still a little black behind, but I think I can live with so much.


In order to prevent more moldy problems in the future, I prepared for the board a piece of oil on the cutting board I received at Christmas.

I decided that my scraper handle was a cause of failure because if I polished them like I polished my cardboard, they would no longer be the correct size to accommodate the rubber scraper components. I think it will drop immediately.


but! I recently found a new wooden handle shovel in Aldi, and because one ounce of prevention is worth a pound of medicine, I put a layer of oil on that handle.


I also smeared the old blade handle because I think I can at least prevent more new mildew.


I believe that I am not the only one who deals with this issue, so I am very interested to hear if you have more skills. share it!
