I heard on Bobby Flay's cooking show that the wooden cutting boards are best. That all we need to clean them with is a rub of lemon and salt. I have both cutting boards, plastic and wood. I use the wooden one to cut my fruits and vegetables and my plastic board to cut my meats. I still insist in washing both with soap and hot water. Pouring boiling water and soaking them for a while should work too. Anything to disinfect them...

Good luck.

Wood butcherblock/cutting boards.

I've found this thread very interesting. I recently purchased a butcher block from a company in Vermont. They put my last name first initial in walnut in the middle of a maple butcher block. It was a bit expensive, but it's absolutely beautiful, I hate to cut on it, but I use it every day.

As for soaking wood products in water, that's not good. The instructions that came with my butcher block said to wash with soap and water after use but then dry immediately, no soaking. They also said to wipe down with mineral oil every other week. The company was www.vermontbutcherblock.com and they had some other cool stuff as well.
