Has your plastic cutting board seen better days? Learn how to remove stains from plastic cutting boards with hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and dishwashing detergent. Easy, green cleaning tutorial.
I have a white plastic cutting board that I use for cutting meat and poultry. It’s easy to store and can be popped into the dishwasher for easy clean-up and disinfection.
The downside to plastic cutting boards… they seem to become discolored or stained after just a few months (or weeks) of use.
Oh, how I hate those icky brown stains that cannot be scrubbed away!
Luckily, I’ve discovered two easy ways to get stains off plastic cutting boards, no bleach needed!
HOW TO REMOVE STAINS FROM PLASTIC CUTTING BOARDS
There are two easy ways to remove stains from cutting boards:
- Hydrogen peroxide soak.
- Baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, and dish detergent paste.
HOW TO USE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE TO REMOVE CUTTING BOARD STAINS
Plain old 3% hydrogen peroxide will bleach away cutting board stains if given enough dwell time.
- Lay the cutting board in a sink.
- Spray or pour hydrogen peroxide over the cutting board until it is wet.
- Allow the hydrogen peroxide to soak for several hours or overnight. (You should see the stain lighten considerably.)
