Step 1: Identify the Culprit

yes well look at the dish with the nasty red spaghetti sauce and think, how can i prevent this? Well, if its a temporary place for the food, like a day, just spray it down with some Crisco spray or something in that category. otherwise, read on.

to get rid of it you will need:

A Stained Bowl
Clorox kitchen cleaner
some water
and if its bad, a scrubber brush or sponge

Step 2: Real Step 1

Grab the Bowl and give it a quick rinse.

Spray it down a bit with bleach cleaner and add a bit of water, then let sit.

Step 3: Then...

After letting it sit for just a bit, not very long, rinse it out a little and wash it like you normally would, and if you need to scrub it a bit like i did and re wash it. Given you handwash dishes...

Step 4: You Should Be Done

you should be done and with clean bowls. i know the last bowl isnt the same one, but i also used it for spaghetti sauce.

    I'm definitely going to have to try this. Someone told me vinegar might do the trick too but I don't have any so that idea is out. Will reply again if it works on an old stain.

    I got a Tupperware with a REALLY old stain on it (I think it had fused with it long ago) and tried this. I DID see a noticeable improvement but alas the stain was too deep. If your stain isn't baked in old or maybe you haven't done dishes in a week or so (guilty many time) I'm pretty sure this will do the trick. I do love the smell of this stuff so I always have some around the house. Just remember to rewash with regular soap and water afterward, you don't want to taste Clorox cleanup in you next meal.

    the stain in the big bowl was about 2 weeks or so. so, why not.
