The Easiest Way To Remove Tomato Stains From Your Favorite Food Containers
By Angel Albring
If you have ever stored tomato sauce in plastic storage bowls, you may have noticed it often stains the container, and even spending hours soaking and scrubbing the Tupperware fails to get the stains out. However, according to Martha Stewart, you can make a stain-removing paste out of three items you probably already have in your kitchen.
Blend one teaspoon of water, ¼ teaspoon of dish soap, and two tablespoons of baking soda in the stained container. Then, scrub the paste around and let it sit for 15 minutes or longer, before you scrub it some more and rinse it off, repeating if necessary.
Of course, it’s always better to avoid tomato stains in the first place. To store your tomato sauce or tomato-based dishes, opt for glass containers or Corningware, or freeze them in freezer bags, ensuring all the air is out before sealing the bag.
