How to Plastic Containers Clean and Clear Again

Let’s start with our easiest cleaning method. We will only need two things: water and baking soda. Mix one liter of water with two tablespoons of baking soda in a medium-sized bowl. Now, just use a brush or small cloth to apply the solution to the stained areas of your plastic. Let the solution sit on the plastic for 15 minutes before rinsing and drying.

If our simple method doesn’t do the trick, then you may want to consider using hydrogen peroxide. This common household product is known to be tough on stains, and it can do wonders when it comes to plastic. Just mix a large spoonful of hydrogen peroxide with a liter of water in a large bowl. Now, immerse your plastic containers in the solution and let them sit for a few hours. After enough time has passed, just dry the containers, and they are clear and free of stains.

Another product that works well on plastic, particularly plastic garden furniture, is Marseille soap. For this method, we just need to cut off a few flakes of the soap. Next, dissolve the soap flakes in some water to form a soapy solution. Now, just apply the liquid to any plastic surface around your house, and you should be quite satisfied with the results.
