Do you have any tips for organising my plastic containers?
Storing your plastic containers can be a challenge, particularly when you seemingly have more lids than containers or vice versa. First of all, we recommend only having the containers that you will use regularly. Simply choose the sizes that you are most likely to use on a frequent basis. Storing your lids vertically allows you to take the one that you need without messing up the order, or you could even use a small dish rack or CD rack for keeping them neat and tidy. You could also choose containers in the same shape so that they will easily store inside each other. These containers can be an essential tool in helping you to create your own storage system, stick to it, and this will help you to save precious time during the day.
Is there anything else I need to remember?
Prior to cleaning your container, ensure that you have read the individual care instructions fully. It is not recommended to wash your plastic container in the dishwasher, and they should be cleaned with warm water and dish soap. If the container is labelled as being dishwasher safe, use the top shelf to avoid the high heats of the machine. Ensure that it has been rinsed properly and dried thoroughly before storing it. Finally, only put your container in the microwave if it is labelled as being microwave safe.
