Can anyone tell me how to clean up an old piece of tupperware? It is a square cake keeper, I bought at a yard sale. any ideas?

It is square and feels kind of like it has some kind of build up on it.

  • I'd contact Tupperware directly and/or go on their website and looking up a rep. Either one should be able to direct you as to the tips/tricks to TW clean up. I know that's not the answer but it's just a little suggestion. Hope it helps!

  • I would use Dawn detergent and soak it, then rinse with vinegar. In the future when using plastic wear with food that stains,,,like tomato sauce..spray the container with vegetable oil spray before will prevent the sauce from penetrating the bowls.

  • First set it outside in the heat, Then take it inside and soak in hot water for approx. 20 mintues. Then place baking soda in the bottom of the container and a little warm water to make a paste. scrub it and then let it sit for 5 mintues. Wash as normal if this does not work find a consultant near you and they will help you. If not contact me I will, I am a consultant.:)

  • I can get it replaced with a new one if you like I am a Tupperware Manager. Here is my site you can contact me directly from there.
    If you don't want to go that route try baking soda with some lemon juice made into a paste usaully works great and any smells out.
