I think I'd stay away from the chlorine unless of course you think the
cutting board is harboring the plague, dengue fever, or something.
Juice a couple of lemons. Apply the juice to the wood, then sprinkle it
liberally with salt. Let it stand for a while, over-night even. Then
scrub the board with more lemon juice and salt. After the scrub, put it
in the sun for a few hours.

It's an old way of sanitizing but it works fine.

Oh, now you've done it. You'll be getting the lemon/salt police after
you! (Actually, I think that's also a very good way.}


There's the old "spray with gin" approach too. Makes the kitchen smell

I'd like that! I love the smell of gin/juniper berries.
