How to Remove Tomato Stains from Tupperware

I have used baking soda to answer some of your great questions and I wanted to revisit some of those, as well as give you another tip for how to use Arm & Hammer Baking Soda.
I’m really excited to share this next tip with you because it’s something I just discovered last night! Do you ever store pasta with red sauce in tupperware? If you do then you can understand the frustration of still having an orange residue left on the tupperware, even after you’ve washed it thoroughly with soap and water! Does this look familiar to you?
I’ve always wondered what is the best way to remove tomato stains from my tupperware and last night I discovered the answer! I had this tupperware soaking in my sink and I thought, “baking soda is good for pretty much anything and everything so maybe I’ll try putting some in this tupperware to see if it will get it clean.” Honestly, I was half-way not expecting it to work but I’m glad I grabbed my camera anyways! Check this out…
Immediately after pouring the Arm & Hammer Baking Soda into my tupperware the baking soda started to absorb the color!!! I couldn’t believe my eyes! I only let it set for as long as it took me to set my camera down and pick up the sponge, so maybe 15 seconds. Then I added a couple drops of water and scrubbed the baking soda all around the tupperware and it instantly came clean. The baking soda, water mixture turned bright orange and when I rinsed the tupperware with water it was clean as new!
Can you believe it!?! And all these years I’ve just thrown away tupperware because I couldn’t get that orange stain out. I wish I had known that all I needed was a little Arm & Hammer Baking Soda and some water!
