It is always lovely to enjoy the thanksgiving remains, but when the food is finished, the scent in your plastic containers will linger. Your impulse may be to sell Tupperware, but it’s not appropriate. Here are creative and quick ways to deodorise plastics and save money.

Getting Rid Of The Odour

Rinse as soon as they are clean. The first step in extracting food smells from plastic containers is to disinfect them as quickly as possible. A quick wash of hot water and soap is ideal, but it helps to rinse water before a later shower.

●     The Salty Way

Place them with salt. Thailand curries and other pungent food make for an exciting office luncheon. But often, after drying, they leave permanent traces in your storage containers.

A big pinch of salt will get rid of their scent so that their turkey sandwich does not taste like green chilies and cocoon milk. Before using the bins, wipe the bottom and inside, or you will find a mouthful of salt!

●     Sunlight Helps

Expose it to direct sunlight. Sure, almost everything is changed by sunshine. Setting containers outside on a sunny day will air them and make use of the inherent ability of the sun to combat the smell.

Next, clean the empty containers with lukewarm water, because the heat odour may be added. Then fill the jar with hot water, and add a tablespoon of baking soda–the ultimate ingredient which eliminates the scent. Snap the lid, and allow it to sit overnight.

●     Use Natural Remedy

Another remedy is to spray the bottle inside with lemon juice or cut lemon as citric acid is an excellent smell-eliminating agent. The strong odour of vanilla extract can also render the trick.

Vinegar is also a great natural choice for deodorizing. Fill the left vinegar and cold water containers and let them sit for three to five hours. If required, repeat the disinfecting cycle a few times.

You can also tackle tough odours when a piece of charcoal is placed into the container, the lid screened, and the charcoal absorbed odour for one or two days. Make sure to use natural charcoal produced without light additives or mixtures.

●     Use Newspapers

Place them with the newspaper overnight. The paper removes constant tastes of plastic food containers. Within, grab the crunched newspaper and store overnight or longer.

Remember to wash afterwards with soap and water since the publication is not always considered to be hyper-clean.

●     Washing With Baking Soda

Wash them on the top rack of the dishwasher. Plastic containers can get in contact with the super-heated areas of the washer, which cause them to melt and warp. Clear the stains and odours with baking soda to prevent forming while cleaning.

Baking soda’s purification property is nothing new and also functions for Tupperware as a perfect stain and odour remover.

Only make a thick paste of dry, baked water and soda and rub it into the bottle inside. At least one day, let it hang and then rinse thoroughly. Keep going until there are no marks and the bottle smells fresh.


Stay clean! Keep tidy! Do not store all the bottles or cans that you buy, and hold all your tubes and lids intact. While it’s easy to reuse any soup cup or jam, this creates extra chaos in your packaging.
