January 8, 2010, Newsletter Issue #200: Avoiding Utensil Stains

Tip of the Week

Ever notice how tomato sauce discolors your plastic utensils? That's because the plastic has tiny pores that expand when the plastic is heated. The sauce gets into the pores, staining the plastic. The easiest way to get rid of those stains is to wash the utensils with cool soapy water instead of hot water or in the dishwasher. When the plastic is cool, the stains have no place to settle and come off easily.
