How to I get tomato stains out of plastic containers?

Does anyone have a trick to get the stain out of my plastic containers after I store things like spaghetti sauce and chilli in them? It would be nice to revitalize my poor containers so that they don't look so awful.

  • 1/3 Chlorox and 2/3 water, and let stand until stains disappear.

  • If they are absorbing stains they are reacting with your food. Throw them out. Danger!

  • You shouldn't put any food with any type of fat in plastic containers.
