How to clean orange stains off plastic containers
Are you ready for the DIY life hack that will bring new life to your old stained plastic storage containers? It’s my favorite kitchen tip of the week!
1. Grab a plastic container that is stained orange from a tomato based food.
These are usually stained orange from leftover soup or pasta. Everyone has these. Don’t throw them out! They CAN be cleaned.
2. Get a paper towel and Palmolive.
Fold your paper towel in the bottom of the orange stained plastic container. Then squirt a little dish soap on top of the paper towel. It should be a generous size squirt but you don’t need to coat it with the soap.
3. Add a little water to the container and close the lid tightly.
Pour a little water into the container on top of the paper towel and soap. Then make sure the lid is secured tightly.
4. Shake the container.
Shake shake shake! Keep shaking that container until your orange stains are gone.
It’s that easy! Have you tried this before? Or do you have another way of cleaning the orange stains off your plastic food storage containers? Share with us in the comments.
