Where can I find a good brush to clean my fillet board after cleaning fish? I have been just rinsing the board off and then putting it in the dishwasher at home. I would prefer (and so would my wife) to use a little soap and a good scrub brush to clean the board at the cleaning station so when I got home it wouldn't have a strong fish smell. Do any of y'all put your cleaning board in the dishwasher? I've read where some spray their board down with a water/bleach mixture to clean and remove the smell. What is the mix ration? Any useful tips that y'all use is greatly appreciated.

I just use a plastic bristle brush from Wally world. And I also put a little bleach in my soap/water spray bottle. Gets it squeaky clean and keeps kills the bacteria. Also wash my knives with it...

Y'all are too clean! I just spray mine down with the water hose and put it back in the garage.

I rinse mine off with the livewell pump and rub it with my hand a few times. The next fish on the board doesn't seem to mind.

I use a scrub brush that has a soap container built in. Wet it, light scrub, rinse and hang to dry.

Get you a spray bottle of Clorox Clean-Up Disinfectant Cleaner with Bleach. Spray your board good with it and let it sit for a few minutes. Spray/wipe off and no more fishy smell. One-step cleaning and disinfecting.

Simple Green is a good product for cleaning them with a bristle brush

^ This and the Simple Green Tom mentioned. Both are good disinfectants and kill the odor. I also use a bristle brush.
The only thing fishy that makes it into the house is the fillets in a bucket after they have been rinsed well.

I've seen someone use a large hard bristle brush and they said that they got it at Wal-Mart but I haven't found one there. Do y'all prefer just a regular kitchen dish scrub brush or do y'all prefer a hard bristle brush to really get into those knife cuts on the board?

We wash it in the sink and then put it in the dishwasher.
