Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".
Questions or concerns?  forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

Maybe not more susceptible but white certainly shows a stain more.

Sometimes its another colour that bleeds onto it when it gets packed away wet, light blue and red Icarex will do this. Some softer rubber connectors can leave a stain usually on older kites, sometimes it can be carbon near the upper spreader wear patch.

If its something like oil picked from your flying site you can sometimes remove most of it with a solvent, detergent or I've seen dry cleaning fluid recommended (but never tried it myself). Sadly Icarex colour bleed is almost impossible to remove but will fade a little given time.

Bridle lines also can cause stains as sometend to bleed when they get wet/damp.
