The only cutting boards I've ever used have been the plain white plastic ones. I'd like to try a wooden one, but I'm wondering how they compare to white plastic ones with respect to staining.
My white plastic cutting board has a coating of yellow/orange stain on it from cutting meats, fish, and sweet potatoes. I can get most of it out by putting paper towels soaked in a bleach solution on top of the cutting board and leaving them there overnight, but within a day or two the cutting board is back to the same level of staining as before. Are wooden cutting boards any more resistant to this type of staining?
