Cleaning Tips and Tools Wednesday, May 02nd 2018.
Usually, plastic containers can easily be cleaned just by scrubbing them with a piece of cloth or scrubbing sponge with soap and warm water. Thoroughly rinse them to remove all soapy particles. When doing this, do not use a steel wool pad or metal scraper as these can scratch the surface of your food storage containers and leave traces of metal particles. As soon as you have finished, pat them dry using a dry cloth or place them in a dish drainer to air dry. Of course, your storage container would only be as clean as the towel you dry it with, so make sure that your towels are clean to begin with.
