How to clean cutting boards and butcher blocks exposed to raw or cooked proteins with Tergazyme®:

  1. Add 2 cups of Tergazyme® detergent to a basin of a 3-compartment commercial sink filled with warm water (See Table 2). For effective cleaning only use warm water, NOT hot water (Do Not exceed 130 deg F temperatures), to avoid having the hot water degrade the enzyme. Tergazyme® solution should be made fresh daily.  A 1% Tergazyme® solution is designed to give good reliable cleaning performance for 8 hours at 120 deg F.
  2. Soak items in the Tergazyme® solution for a minimum of 20 minutes. Soak longer for heavier soils.
  3. Scrub any remaining tough spots.
  4. Rinse thoroughly with tap water
  5. Dry thoroughly.
