Probably, there is no such person in whose kitchen there is not a single plastic tray. It is so convenient to store the leftovers of dinner in them, take lunch with you to the office or distribute tasty treats to relatives so that they will certainly forget to return the dishes. Of course, after such a serious load, containers (and even glass bottles) start to smell. If the smell cannot be “washed away”, try this method.… Approved by thousands of housewives.
No kitchen is complete without storage containers. Special trays, "reusable" plastic packaging, attached for a new purpose, cans with conservation - all this property is carefully stored by the hostess and is rarely thrown away. Even when the container starts to smell bad. What happens is almost inevitable. Especially if you store warm food in plastic or get carried away with conservation. Smell is a clear signal that it's time for a container to retire.… But if the hand does not rise to throw out the tray or jar, this simple method will help get rid of the aroma.
To eliminate unpleasant odors from a plastic or glass container, prepare:
1. Mustard or mustard powder;
2. Very warm water.
Send a teaspoon of mustard into an empty container, fill it to the brim with warm (for glass jars - hot) water, mix well and leave for a couple of minutes. Then pour out the water and wash as usual. The smell will go away like magic.
If the plastic tray needs to be emptied, it will take longer. After all, plastic quickly absorbs and is reluctant to release odors. Therefore, leave the "mustard water" in the container for at least a couple of hours, and preferably overnight. Wash as usual in the morning.
All containers now look and smell like new. But still, do not forget that the plastic tray is in list of 18 everyday things that need to be thrown away urgently and replaced with new ones.
