You made spaghetti, had leftovers, and plopped them in a plastic container. Now, you’ve got a stained-red mess on your hands. Here’s how you can avoid this next time.
Before you dump your leftovers in the container, spray a light coat of cooking spray over the plastic. Redditors say this provides a protective layer that prevents the container from soaking up the color and smell of the food.
The spray also won’t affect the taste of your food and make it much easier to remove from the container when you’re ready to reheat those leftovers.
If you’ve already got some stained containers, though, don’t give up on them quite yet. There could be a way to save them!
But the next time you’re stashing some leftovers for later, just grab that bottle of cooking spray.
