How to Clean Greasy Plastic Containers


Video Transcript:

Hi this is Judi at "Judi in the Kitchen". Do you know how plastic containers kinda get a greasy film on them? They might even have an odor from food that has been stored in there? Don't throw them away. I have a wonderful tip to get that off of there. Take a damp sponge, put some baking soda on it, and rub that on the inside of the container. It should take the grease right off and the odor with it. If you feel like that is not enough and you want to take a different approach. Take four table spoons of baking soda, add that to one-quart of hot water, and then soak your container in that, and that should take it off. To see more tips and tricks go to my website www.HandMadeinIowa.com. Look for the recipes page and you'll see lots of fun information in there. This is Judi at "Judi in the Kitchen". Thanks for stopping by.
