How can I get spahetti stains off Tupperware?
Spaghetti sauce has permanantly stained my Tupperware. I can't seem to scrub it out.
Baking Soda Paste: Use a baking soda paste (baking soda and water) and rub into the stain. You
can then rinse with vinegar (optional) and wash normally.
Sun: Place container outside on a nice sunny day and the sun actually bleaches the stain out.
Bleach: Please note that this is not the first option to try but one to use if the stain is really persistent and you've tried the other methods.
a) Make a strong solution of dishwasher detergent (which usually contains bleach) and water (1/4 cup detergent to 1 cup warm water) and let it set on stain.
b) Alternatively, add bit of bleach to water and let it set on the stain. If it doesn't work, make it a little stronger and repeat. Then wash the container normally prior to use.
(NOTE: This is NOT to be used for Microwave used containers, because the bleach stays in the pores and can fume into your food when micro waving.)
Hope this helps!
