Lemons to Remove Tomato Sauce Stains

Apr 02, 12 Lemons to Remove Tomato Sauce Stains

Caray! You made the most amazing Enchiladas Rojas for your hombre last night, but your gorgeous spring dress now looks like a red-eyed cyclops. And your cutting board has red streaks that looks like it was murdered in cold blood. What were you doing, chica? Reenacting Scarface? Mexican food fight? I won’t ask. The reason this happens is because of the lypocene in tomatoes. It always leaves behind a telltale red or orange stain in Tupperware containers and clothes, usually accompanied by a residual odor and, now…you have to get it out.

This tip on removing tomato stains is just what la abuelita ordered. Just use lemon. Yep. Lemon. The acid in lemon effectively removes the stubborn red stains right from your clothes, plastic and glass. As soon as you’re hit, immediately remove the excess sauce with a spoon, run cold water through the back of the stain and, after, soak it in white vinegar or lemon juice.

When it comes to your plastic and glassware, just spray or rub lemon juice and let it stand. You can also just let the container sit on a towel in the sun, and like magic, it’ll bleach out the stain. No harmful and nasty bleach agents necessary. Just, next time, use an apron, por Dios or your romantic night might be mistaken for a homicide.
