The perfect hack to get the stains out of plastic containers

Plastic containers are the perfect kitchen tool to save leftovers but a night of spaghetti bolognese can easily leave these containers with a nasty orange stain. Luckily, one TikTok user has shared a fantastic trick to get these grease stains out!

Every once in awhile a plastic container gets a nasty greasy satin from leftovers and no amount of soaking and scrubbing can get it out. So, there's no choice but to throw it the recycling.

However, one TikTok angel, Adi Kempler, has shared with everyone a handy trick to dissolve the stains without any soaking and the whole thing takes less than a minute. Adi captioned the video:

So, I never post on here but I really wanted to share this trick for getting greasy stains out of Tupperware. This hack has saved so many of my Tupperware friends. Try it!!!!

First, Adi squirts a little dishwashing liquid into the container and adds in some warm water like usual. But then, she tears up a few sheets of kitchen roll and pops them in with the soapy water.

Then, she puts the lid on and shakes the container for about 45 seconds. After that, she pours the contents out into the sink and the stains have magically disappeared. But, remember to grab the paper from the sink before it clogs up your drain!


The trick works as the kitchen roll helps to absorb all the grease stuck to the sides of the container.

The TikTok video already has over 500,000 likes and those who have tried the trick seem to love it too! One person commented:

This works I’ve done it numerous times.

While another chimed in:

That might’ve just changed my life.
