How to get rid of odours in containers … kitchen helper


If you’ve got plastic food storage containers you’ll know that they can retain odours from foods even after being thoroughly washed. Luckily there is an easy way to fix this and get your containers odour-free in no time.

The problem arises because plastic food containers are porous, so the smell of foods like garlic or curry can become “stuck” in the container. To get rid of the odours scrunch up some newspaper and store inside the container for a couple of days and the newspaper will absorb the odour. Make sure you give the container a good wash before using it again.
