Cleaning tip--storage container stains

Good Morning it's time for another cleaning tip and today it is getting those yucky stains out of your storage containers.

Stains in Plastic Storage Containers: Use a baking soda paste (baking soda and water) and rub into the stain. You can then rinse with vinegar (optional) and wash normally. Another method is to place container outside on a nice sunny day and the sun actually bleaches the stain out. To avoid stains in the first place, spray container with cooking spray before putting things in it that stain i.e. spaghetti sauce.
 
I've also heard that if you spray the containers with a non-stick spray first, then tomato based sauces don't stain the container. 
 
Today I have a job interview at Pier 1.  I would love to work there and really hope I get this job.
 
But before I do that...I have a high priority job here at home today.  Attempting to remove the rest of the gum from Rylie Jo's hair.  I have 3 remedies to try, 1. peanut butter  2. olive oil  3. Coke.  I've heard about some really great results with the peanut butter, so I'm gonna try that one first.  Wish us luck!  Otherwise, Rylie is getting a hair cut today, lol.
 
Have a great day & hugs to all my friends!

P.S. It works!  Yea!  No haircut for Rylie today.  I massaged the peanut butter into her hair where the gum was stuck.  I could feel wee, little bits of the gum in the peanut butter.  Then I tried gently pulling a little comb through the hair.  Finally I put her in the bathtub and starting washing the hair.  I used some bar soap to help get the oil out of her hair.  Then I added lots of conditioner.  When I took her out and combed her hair there were a few tangles so I sprayed it with detangler and viola!  No more gum.  Yipee!
 
I highly recommend using peanut butter to remove gum from childrens hair.
