One of the most natural things we can use to clean the plastic containers is baking soda. Simply sprinkle some baking soda on the place where it stains, then scrub it gently with a sponge. The baking soda can easily remove stubborn stains on plastic boxes as well as unwanted odor from the previous stored food stuck on the plastic.


Like baking soda, (white) vinegar is a natural cleaning product that can remove stains and odors. Make a solution of white vinegar and water with the ratio of 1:1 and soak the stained plastic food container in it. Leave it like that for 30 minutes, then rinse it well with cold water.

Dishwashing Soap

Coat the plastic food storage container with diswashing soap and let the soap seep through the plastic pores to remove the stain for 30 minutes. Scrub it with soft cloth and rinse it with water.

It is super easy to get rid of stubborn stains from plastic food storage containers. Try one of those methods above and stop throwing away these stained plastic food containers to the landfill. Decolor them and reuse them instead.
