Beets can be known to stain, whether it be your kitchen counter, cutting board, or even your hands. One trick we recommend is to use a spritz of cooking spray on your hands or cutting board to prevent any staining. If it’s too late, and there’s already a stain … washing with baking soda can do the trick!
