Cutting Board Question

The other day I was watching a youtube video where the person cleaned his cutting board with vinegar. I had never heard of this. Does vinegar sanitize the cutting board?

Not that I'm aware of. Salt, on the other hand, is an anti-bacterial inhibitor, and what I use to clean my wooden cutting board.

Vinegar is a good cleaning solution period. So why not use it on the cutting board?
What kind of board was it?

Yes, I wanted to let you know that vingear does really do a good job cleaning a cutting board.

I did not know that about salt either. Thanks.

It was a wooden cutting board.

We use vinegar and water to clean our hardwood floors, but I never thought to use it on my cutting board.

After doing a little research, vinegar and water, 1 to 5 solution works, as does, salt, and for extra santizing, hydrogen peroxide, 1 to 1 or bleach and water 1 to 5, can also be used.

Also be sure to periodically condition the board with food grade mineral oil.

Thanks for that info Selkie. I do spray my cutting boards with bleach/water (1T/16oz) periodically. I keep a spray bottle of the bleach/water under my sink and every so often I spray my sink, sponges, dish drainer, etc.
