DIY Disinfecting Spray For Cutting Board

Posted by Zongle Therapeutics on

Last week we helped you guys do away with teary eyes when you're chopping onions. This week, on Tuesday Tips and Tricks, as promised we'll take care of that disgusting odor that lingers on your cutting boards when you're done chopping: 

👉 Garlic 

👉 Onions 

👉 Fish 

👉 Prawns 

And anything else that tastes amazing but leaves a bad odor on your classic cutting board and makes you nauseous. 

Whenever you cut, slice, chop, or dice there's some leftovers of these pieces on your board that you need to take off otherwise they'll rot in there and smell.  

So how can Essential Oils help with this? 

They can help you clean your board plus do away with that smell easily from your boards each time. So, they stay fresh and clean the next time you're ready to chop the ingredients for an intense recipe that calls for tons of onions, garlic.  

The traditional way is to: 

Take 1 part water to 3 parts baking soda and scrub this mix on the board. Then rinse it off and you're good to go! 

The New & Organic way is to use the following DIY for disinfecting your cutting board: 


  • Vinegar. 
  • Water. 
  • Lemon Essential Oil. 
  • Tea Tree Essential Oil. 
  • Spray bottle. 


  • Use a combination of 1 Part Vinegar, 2 Parts Water and 5 Drops of each Lemon and Tea Tree Essential Oils in a spray bottle.  
  • Spray on the board, and let it sit for 10 minutes.  
  • Rinse with organic dishwashing liquid and let it dry.  


To increase life of the cutting board, apply coconut oil once it has completely dried.  

Happy DIYing! 😊
