When you’re engrossed with cooking delicious food, you often forget to wash your hands before juggling between multiple storage containers. This can lead to sticky oil and spice stains on your containers that make them look unclean. But don’t worry, even the most stubborn stains are not difficult to remove. With the right cleaning method, you will be able to rid your containers of those stubborn stains.
Try this easy step-by-step solution to restore the look of your kitchen containers.
Step 1: Wipe
Take a sponge and wipe the inside and outside of your containers to remove loose dirt, dust and oil stains. This will make the process of cleaning stubborn deposits easy.
Step 2: Make a Cleaning Solution
Now make a cleaning solution by combining 2 tbsp. of white vinegar, 2 tsp. of dishwashing liquid and 1 cup of lukewarm water in a bowl. Mix well.
Step 3: Apply
Use a scrubbing pad to apply this solution on the containers. Scrub it thoroughly and wait 1 minute. This will loosen stubborn stains.
Step 4: Wash
Wash the container thoroughly with lukewarm water. If you can still see stains, repeat Steps 3 and 4.
Step 5: Dry
Take a clean microfibre cloth and pat-dry your containers. Then, place them in sunlight to dry completely.
With this simple cleaning method, your kitchen containers will be squeaky clean. You can use this method for containers made of glass, steel and plastic.
You can use the remaining cleaning solution to wash your utensils too. When cleaning glass containers, avoid using a scrubber that is abrasive. Instead, opt for a nylon scrubber that’s easily available in the market.
