Tipsy Tuesday (#179)

Our plastic containers are gross!

Tip #179

Nothing a little bleach, dishwashing liquid, and heat can’t fix!

To clean food-stained plastic containers:

1. Fill almost to the top with water and a squirt of dish soap.
2. Add 1/4 cup of bleach.
3. Microwave the container for 40 seconds, or until the solution is boiling.
4. Allow to rest until the water is luke-warm.
5. Wash out your container.


P.S. According to Clorox, it is perfectly safe to use bleach on dishes, but if it makes you feel better, run the containers through a cycle in the dishwasher to clear all bleach residue.

What a great tip, Stacie! I have tossed a few containers like that thinking there was no hope for them - now I'll be able to salvage future ones instead! :)
