Since Cascade Plastic Booster 2 in 1 Plastic Cleaning Additive was discontinued, we’ve had to find alternative methods for keeping our plastic ware clean and free from odors. Below are some effective alternatives you might consider trying:
“Season” your plastic ware as you would a new iron skillet or wooden salad bowl. Before each use, coat the inside and bottom of lid with olive oil to protect it. You might also try vegetable oil or cooking spray.
By far the very best advice….NEVER introduce heat. Plastics absorb odors and colors when heated. There is also some evidence that plastics release cancer causing carcinogens when microwaved so you should never microwave in plastic anyway. Also, once you’ve “microwaved” a stain in, it’s hard to get it out. Let foods cool before storing, never microwave in plastic and before cleaning, rinse with cooler water.
