Cleaning the Marble Chopping Board
Pour two cups of warm water into a spray bottle. This will be the base of your homemade cleaning solution, creating a diluted cleaner that is safe for marble surfaces.
Add one cup of distilled white vinegar. Make no substitutions, as no other vinegar products have the same disinfectant quality as distilled white vinegar.
Also pour two tsp. of liquid dish detergent into the spray bottle. This will work as an added cleaning agent that will easily cut through grease and clear away food particles.
Place the lid on the bottle and shake to combine ingredients. This solution will work to clean the surface, kill bacteria and leave a streak-free shine on the marble chopping board.
Spray the solution directly onto the chopping board, let it sit for a few seconds to fully disinfect the surface and then wipe away with a damp sponge to remove any remaining residue or cleaner.
