How to Clean and Disinfect Wooden Cutting Boards

August 26, 2015 5:21 pm

A wooden cutting board is an essential tool in any kitchen, but it's also one of the most confounding items when it comes to cleaning and disinfecting. Can you use water? Should you wash with regular dish soap? The list of questions is never-ending, but these tried-and-true methods will show you how it's done!

  1. The lemon and salt method. If you’re partial to using all-natural cleaning techniques in your kitchen, this may be the cutting board method for you. Simply sprinkle the cutting board with coarse salt, then use half of a lemon to scrape away deep-set stains and bacteria.
  2. The bleach method. Create a solution of 2 tablespoons of bleach per 1 gallon of water, then wipe your cutting board using quick, swift motions to avoid waterlog. Be sure to rinse thoroughly before using.
  3. The vinegar method. Another great all-natural way to clean your cutting board is by using simple white vinegar. Sprinkle baking soda all over the cutting board and spray it with a spray bottle of vinegar, as the vinegar has natural disinfecting properties. Allow the paste to bubble, then wipe it away with a cold, wet cloth.
  4. The hydrogen peroxide method. First, wipe your cutting board with a paper towel soaked in white vinegar, then finish the job with a second paper towel soaked in hydrogen peroxide to kill germs.

Salsa’s Mex Grill: Fresh Mexican Fare in the Food Court

August 19, 2015 4:16 pm

Salsa's Mex Grill may reside in a mall food court, but its location does nothing to detract from the quality of the cuisine at this popular Woodbridge restaurant. It still dishes out fresh, colorful fare to customers, just like a solid stand-alone Mexican eatery would. So if you're looking to grab something quick, but still tasty, during a shopping spree, swing by Salsa's Mex Grill.

According to patrons, the taco salads shouldn't be missed. They're served inside of crispy taco shells shaped like bowls with all the traditional fixings: beans, salsa, lettuce, and cheese or sour cream, plus your choice of chicken, beef, steak, shrimp, or veggies. Pick your protein and wait a few minutes while chefs prepare the taco salad, or call ahead to have it ready when you arrive. Regulars also praise the tortas, but burritos, tacos, quesadillas, and nachos are all on the menu at Salsa's Mex Grill, too.
