Keeping Plastic Food Storage Containers Odor & Stain Free



Plastic containers tend to absorb odors and stains from the food put into them. For example tomato- based foods stain, and onions or garlic will leave their smell and taste in the plastic. . To prevent this, before putting the food in the container spray interiors of the container base and lid with cooking spray. Protects and makes for easier cleaning! Do this every time before use.
