If you're anything like us, you probably love your tupperware but despise those stubborn stains that seem impossible to remove.We're about to spill the beans on how to clean stained tupperware naturally, using simple, eco-friendly methods that will make both your containers and the planet smile.

Why Go Natural?

Traditional cleaning products often contain harsh chemicals that not only harm the environment but can also leave residues on our beloved tupperware, potentially affecting the taste of our food. Natural cleaning methods are not only safe but also cost-effective and readily available.

Lemon and Baking Soda Magic

First up in our natural cleaning arsenal is the dynamic duo of lemon and baking soda. These two kitchen staples can work wonders on your stained Tupperware. Here's what you'll need:

  • Lemon
  • Baking soda
  • Warm water
  • Scrubbing brush or sponge


  1. Squeeze the juice of a lemon into the stained container, making sure to coat the entire inside surface.
  2. Sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda over the lemon juice.
  3. Use your Seep Bamboo Brush or Seep Sponge to gently scrub the stained areas.
  4. Leave it to sit for about 15-20 minutes.
  5. Rinse the container thoroughly with warm water.

The natural acidity of lemon combined with the mild abrasive action of baking soda is a recipe for stain-fighting success. Your tupperware will thank you with a refreshed, stain-free glow!

Vinegar to the Rescue

Another natural cleaning superstar is vinegar, a kitchen staple with versatile cleaning properties. For this method, you'll need:

  • White vinegar
  • Warm water
  • Baking soda
  • A scrubbing brush or sponge


  1. Mix equal parts white vinegar and warm water in the stained container.

  2. Add a tablespoon of baking soda and stir gently. Be prepared for some fizz!

  3. Allow the mixture to sit for 15-20 minutes.

  4. Scrub the stains with a brush or sponge.

  5. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.

The acid in vinegar can effectively break down stains, and when combined with baking soda, it creates a fizzy cleaning reaction that's both fun and effective!

Sunlight Magic

If you're looking for an effortless way to remove stains and deodorize your Tupperware naturally, consider the power of sunlight. Here's what you need to do:

  1. Wash your stained Tupperware as usual with warm soapy water.
  2. Rinse them thoroughly.
  3. Place the containers in direct sunlight for a few hours, preferably outside.
  4. Let the sun's UV rays work their magic!

Sunlight has natural bleaching properties that can help fade stains and eliminate odours. Plus, it's an eco-friendly method that doesn't cost a thing!


Cleaning stained Tupperware doesn't have to involve harsh chemicals or excessive effort. With these natural methods, you can say goodbye to stubborn stains and keep your containers looking fresh and clean. 

So, the next time you open your kitchen cabinet and find stained tupperware, don't fret. Grab a lemon, some vinegar, or simply harness the power of sunlight, and let nature work its cleaning magic. Your tupperware will thank you, and you'll be contributing to a cleaner, greener world, one container at a time. Happy cleaning!
