What you need
1/2 – Lemon
On a chopping board that needs to be cleaned, spread baking powder. Take lemon and allow the juice to mix with baking soda. You will notice bubbles. Keep it for 10-15 minutes. Using the lemon rind, scrub the dirt away. Wash off with water. Wipe the water using a soft cloth. Take some oil on your palm and gently spread it over the board. You can wipe it off later.
