Out of Period but still applicable:
As a relataively experienced cook but a newbie SCA person, I am not
the greatest on care of my equipment.  I have some plastic cutting boards
that over time had become stained and I soaked them in bleach/water/white
vinegar in the sink, then I am running them through the dishwasher.   Is this
going to be enough to sterilize them so I can keep using them, or should I
just replace them?  Keep in mind that I am cheap and broke right now.
Also, what should I do to refurbish my fairly dried out wooden cutting boards, 
and what do you allrecommend that you use plastic vs. wooden cutting
boards for?  I had always heard to use the plastic for meat because it could
be cleaned easier.

as bad as in Atlanta)
