After investing in your Tupperware collection it is important to keep it in great shape! Yes, it does come with a lifetime warranty, but that still doesn’t mean you don’t have to take care of it. When buying Tupperware you are doing so because you want a quality product that will last years, but most likely decades. This stuff is meant to last, no lie. So what do you do when you’ve made a fantastic tomato sauce and you store in in the fridge and when you’ve finished it off you wash your container only to realize that it’s been stained? Don’t worry, over my years of owning and loving Tupperware I have complied a list of ways to get those stains out of your Tupperware.

 

Below are my proven methods to get those nasty stains out!

Prevention

 I know, I know you’re probably only reading this because your precious piece of Tupperware already has the stain, but this is an important paragraph to read for the next time you’re making that batch of spaghetti sauce.

To prevent your Tupperware containers from staining use a non-stick oil and lightly coat the inside of the Tupperware before placing the dish into container. I use a basting brush and a little bit of extra virgin olive or vegetable oil to coat the inside of the container. By doing this you create a bit of a barrier so that the staining is less likely to occur.

Another helpful tip is to limit the amount of time that the sauce or other yucky staining food is sitting in the container. Going through your fridge or freezer often will help you to catch the left-over that might have been forgotten about.

 Helpful Hint

When using the dishwasher to wash your Tupperware you can avoid staining by pre-rinsing all dishes that have a sauce or food that are prone to staining.

 

For When It’s too late.. and the stains have happened.

 Let’s face it certain foods will stain your dishes no matter what you do to prevent it. Luckily there are a few different ways that you can clean your Tupperware that should take care of the stains. I have included a few options for you to try just incase one doesn’t work.

 Remember when you’re cleaning your Tupperware always use a soft sponge or soft cloth because an abrasive pad can scratch the bowl.

 Baking Soda – Take a scoop of baking soda and mix it with warm water to make a paste. Rub the paste all along the inside of the container. Let it sit for at least 24 hours then rinse it out. If the stain is still there repeat these steps until you have the stain out.

Bleach – This method does work on the toughest stains, but I prefer to use this as a last resort because I am not a fan of bleach. Every.Single.Time I use bleach I end up ruining a shirt, or a pair of pants so I find it best to just avoid the stuff. But if you’re capable of using bleach without ruining your clothing, or the carpet, then give this a shot. Take 1/3 cup of bleach and mix it with a cup of boiling water and a drop of dish soap. Make sure you have enough solution to cover the stain completely. If not then add another 1/3 cup of bleach and another cup of boiling water and a drop of dish soap. Mix the solution well and let it sit until the water has cooled down but is still slightly warm. Use a microfiber cloth to gentle scrub the inside of the container to remove the stain. Repeat if necessary.

Vinegar – This is perhaps the easiest method. Just fill the container enough to cover the stain and let it sit for a while and then scrub it with a soft cloth until the stain fades. You may have to repeat this several times to get the stain out.
