How to Prevent Your Cutting Board from Sliding

Do you ever start chopping away preparing a meal and realize your cutting board is moving away from you? Having your cutting board sliding around on your countertop while you try to chop vegetables is not only a nuisance, but it could be potentially dangerous.

There are a few ways you can avoid a big mishap in the kitchen when it comes to your cutting board. First, you can wet a thin kitchen towel, then wring it out to remove as much water as possible. Place the towel on your work surface in an even layer, and then place your cutting board on top of the towel, to create traction between the board and your work surface.

In a pinch, you can do the same thing with a damp paper towel. Lastly, a non-slip mat, cut to the size of your cutting board, will also prevent it from sliding (and it will keep your fingers safe). Now you're ready to begin chopping!

Watch the video above to see the ways you can prevent your cutting board from sliding in action.
