Soak with detergent and HOT water for about 15 or so minutes. Then use soapy sponge to scrub.

Be careful with hot water though. Some tupperware (also cups, etc) plastic is more toxic than others, and with hot water may undergo slight hydrolysis (even if not visible to the naked eye) to release small amounts of toxic byproducts.

Just use a strong dishwashing detergent (eg. Magiclean) to wash the tupperware. If it still appears to remain oily after *that*, then it's just the oily nature of the tupperware plastic, don't worry about it.

Real Tupperware (tm) is generally nontoxic. It's the el cheapo generic plastic containers you need to be worried about.

DF uses only Pyrex glass containers for food storage. Keep in mind many compounds used in plastic are oil/lipid soluble. It is a bad idea storing oily food in plastic.

Note: Some plastics are made from HDPE - High Density Polyethelyne -- or UHMW polyethelyne. The low-friction characteristics of this plastic can give it a greasy feel. Look under the base of the item, it would be stamped there a small mark what type of plastic. Something like PS, etc

These are not 'oily' or dirty, so cannot wash away one, soaking into hot water may also be dangerous for some type of plastics/tubberware.

There is only ONE brand of Tupperware... thats Tupperware.



I believe it can take near boiling water without issues, and furthermore Tupperware is renowned for its safety, reliability and durability. Also you aint using 100% water to wash, hot water refering to 50 to 60C.

Just wash twice?

First a soap and soak.

Then again with a soap and rinse.

Works for me.

Or just wipe it down with kitchen towels before washing to absorb the oil.
