Put kitchen roll all over the dish so it is completely covered.

TikTok user Robbie Bell (@robbiebell8) shared his hack which has had more than 14,300 likes on the site.
To keep his chopping board smelling fresh, Robbie used bicarbonate of soda.
Spread baking soda evenly over the chopping board before squeezing the juice of half a lemon onto the board.
Using the half lemon as a sponge, massage the mixture on the chopping board.
If you don’t have a lemon to hand, you can use water but the citrus will help to oust any unpleasant smells.
Once the paste has been thoroughly massaged into the board, leave it for 30 minutes before rising off with a damp cloth.
