Reusable storage boxes are one of the greatest inventions of all time, but equally one of the most annoying things in the whole damn world. The missing lids, the stacking attempts that result in D5 avalanches, and, of course, the staining.
Why is it that your clear plastic tubs can only have to look at an arrabbiata pasta sauce or a chicken tikka masala curry and they become bright orange for eternity? This meme gets it…
Many a good plastic lunchbox has been lost to staining, but we refuse to stand for it anymore. So thanks to this super-simple TikTok hack, we will never have to chuck a stained tub away again, as this promises to remove all stains.
TikTok user @AdiKempler shared a video in which she uses just three things to clean her Tupperware: washing up liquid, warm water and ripped up kitchen roll.
She simply squirts the washing up liquid into the tub and half fills with warm water, before popping in a piece of kitchen towel that’s been torn into a couple of pieces. She pops the lid on and gives the whole thing a right good shake, et voila – when she rinses out the soap bubbles and gets rid of the kitchen roll, all that’s left is the shiniest, cleanest Tupperware tub we ever did see.
The reason the trick works is that the paper towel helps to absorb all of the oily residue during the process of shaking. Simple, yet so effective.
Word of advice though… be sure to put your lid on properly or your kitchen will end up looking like a Magaluf foam party cira 2007.
