Remove Tomato Sauce Residue from Plastics–Easy!

I absolutely hate the mess tomato-based sauces make to plastic storage containers – even when you don’t heat food in them. It feels like you can’t rid of the oily red slick no matter how much detergent, hot water & scrubbing you employ.

This wee trick just makes it a much smoother exercise:

  1. Rinse food residue out. Shake out water, don't dry;
  2. Sprinkle a layer of baking soda (bicarbonate soda) all over. Go occupy yourself for five minutes (i.e. do the other dishes!);
  3. With your hand lightly rub the soda over all the stained areas. No strenuous effort required. Wear gloves if you have sensitive skin. See how it absorbs the residue?
  4. Shake out contents into the bin and wash as usual (n.b. last image is pre washing).

Grease and odour all taken care of! Now what’s for dessert?

Enjoy the weekend folks!
