How To Remove Tomato Sauce Stains From Plastic

Put plasticware with tomato sauce in a dishwasher and what do you get? Clean plasticware with tomato sauce stains. Here’s how to clean tomato sauce stains from your favorite plastic container in four easy steps.

Step 1: Hand Wash.

Using a concentrated dish liquid like Dawn®, wash the stained plasticware with a sponge, just as you would with any dish.

Step 2: Air Dry.

Place the plasticware on the drying rack and allow it to air dry.

Step 3: Place On The Windowsill.

After the plasticware has dried, move the container to a windowsill that gets direct light from the sun. Over time, the sunlight will bleach out the stain.
