Scrub it with soap and water.
Rinse with clean water.
Let it air dry.

IF YOU ARE IN AN AREA WITH HANTA VIRUS - don't follow the instructions above. Spray all surfaces thoroughly with a mix of 1-1/2 cups of bleach per gallon of water.

Let it sit for 10 minutes and then rinse and scrub.

And put drawer liners in after it's clean.
