Tupperware airtight container are great for food storage. They have stood the test of time, it used to be remembered as used by a Mom to return from Tupperware parties laden with them. She still has some of them to this day, and if the seal gets chipped or cracked, just replace it with a new one, I know she has a lifetime warranty on most of her product range.
Things Included in Warranty
However sometimes, there are things that are not covered by the warranty, such as unbearable stains and odors. Most of the stains on your food container can be removed with baking soda paste. (Just add water to baking soda powder) Unfortunately, if the stain has set for a long time, then try pure bleach.

Most of the stains come from the red pigments in tomato-based products, such as the vegetable itself or even spaghetti Bolognese sauce. It would be a good idea to run cold water through the containers before placing the tomatoes in them. This process helps close pores in plastic food containers to minimize staining.
How to take care these precious pieces?
To quickly remove tomato-based stains before they set, wash items under cold water immediately by washing with liquid dish soap. You can also try a light coating of vegetable oil spray on your Tupperware bowls before putting in your tomatoes.

However, to crumple up some old newspapers, put them in the containers and seal them tightly. The carbon in the newspaper ink will absorb the odor. After a few days, the containers can be removed and washed as usual. If the smell persists, you can repeat this procedure several times. Better yet, if you have a piece of charcoal that you just stuck in the bowl for a few days to do the trick! Some people don’t like the idea of charcoal or charcoal, So you can substitute it with a baking soda paste and smear the area that is stained. Seal and leave it for a few days as before. Then wash with soap and water. Another great trick is to have some peeled apple leftover and put it in the smelling Tupperware container. Seal that, after a few days, gives a good wash.
Some consumers complained that old Tupperware containers become sticky and greasy and these oil stains are not easily removed with soap and water. Using a detergent or baking soda paste or diluted bleach solution will definitely get rid of the stickiness, trust me! Last but not least, you sometimes get mold that grows on these products if they don’t dry well after being washed.
