Avoiding Tomato Stains

This nifty little trick was passed on to me from a cleaning client who regularly buys Tupperware containers.

If you are wanting to avoid tomato stains on your plastic containers,  give the container a light spray of canola oil or any oil of choice before you put in any tomato based food in.  The oil acts as a barrier that prevents the plastic from absorbing the tomato color.

Cooked tomatoes ready for the freezer. 


  1. Nice! I will remember this. Thank you!

  2. Thank you for that tip - whenever I freeze leftover tomato bolognese sauce, it always stains! Good to know :)

  3. Great tip. Might also work for chilli and curry, shall have to try it.

  4. I wish it worked for white shirts, I’m a menace there!
