How to degrease plastic containers: a guide on how to clean and refurbish plastic containers.

  • Why degrease, wash and clean plastic containers with natural products?

THE plastic containers that we commonly use in the kitchen, are usually intended to accommodate foodstuffs. It is important to minimize the use of chemical detergents, which could leave residues that would then contaminate the food.

The classic household detergents contain many allergenic and potentially toxic substances, so much so that often among the warnings for use there is a symbol ofdangerfollowed by phrases like:

  • Causes severe eye irritation
  • Causes skin irritation
  • It can cause allergic reactions
  • In case of skin contact, wash with plenty of water

Sometimes, among the words that seem more negligible (usually in small print and on the back of the package) we read:
Contains 5-chloro-2methyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one, 2-methyl-2H-isothiazol-3-one ”.

These are molecules that, according to laboratory tests, have been found to be corrosive to rabbit skin, irritating to the eyes and highly toxic to mice by inhalation. Furthermore, these agents make the skin more sensitive and more exposed todermatitisand other skin problems. Do you really want these molecules to end up on your food?

On the contrary, on the packaging front, the producers pride themselves on using “True plant extracts” or “Authentic lemon juice…”; so why not bypass the supermarket shelf edegrease the plastic containersdirectly withdo-it-yourself natural degreasers?
