How to Organize Tupperware

Anyone who has ever opened their kitchen cupboard to find a jumble of mismatched Tupperware knows the frustration of dealing with disorganized plastic containers. Fortunately, there are a few simple steps that can help to bring order to the chaos.

How to Organize Tupperware

Take Everything Out Of The Cupboard

First, take everything out of the cupboard and sort through everything and get rid of any containers that are cracked, stained, or otherwise damaged. Match up lids with their corresponding containers and set aside any pieces that are no longer usable. Give whatever remains a good cleaning. This will help to ensure that any food residue or dirt is removed from the containers.

Group Together Like Items

Next, it is helpful to group together like items, such as lids, bowls, and plates. This will make it easier to see what you have and to put things away in an organized manner.

Sort Tupperware By Type And Size

Once you have everything grouped together, start sorting the Tupperware by type and size. This will help you to better utilize the space in your cupboard. For example, storing all of the lids together in one place, or all of the bowls together in another.

Put Everything Back In An Orderly Fashion

Finally, once you have everything sorted, it is time to put everything back in the cupboard in an orderly fashion. This doesn’t mean that you have to line up all of the Tupperware perfectly, but rather that you store things in a way that makes sense and is easy to access. For example, putting the lids on the top shelf and the bowls on the bottom shelf.


By following these simple steps, you can bring order to your Tupperware collection and make your kitchen cupboard more organized and functional.

How to Keep Tupperware Clean

To prevent bacteria buildup, it’s important to clean your Tupperware on a regular basis. Here are some tips on how to keep your plastic containers clean:

  • Wash Tupperware by hand using hot, soapy water. If you’re short on time, you can also wash them in the dishwasher.
  • Use a mild detergent when washing Tupperware to avoid any damage to the plastic.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners on Tupperware as this can cause discoloration and scratches.
  • Be sure to dry Tupperware completely after washing to prevent any water spots from forming.

By following these simple tips, you can help to keep your Tupperware clean and free of bacteria.


How to Clean Your Microwave

All that is needed is a burnt popcorn or some leftovers to turn one good-looking microwave into a horrible disaster. Whether it is greasy or has an offensive smell, the best thing that you can do is to always regularly clean the top of the microwave in the interval of a few days. When you see stains inside your microwave or you are trying to remove a portion of food that is stuck to the tray, try these few steps in making your microwave sparkle.

When you want to clean your microwave, choosing the right type of cleanser is very important. You can use things you normally see in your house: baking soda, vinegar, or soap like the Mrs. Meyers Clean dish soap. And also avoid using bleach because it destroys home appliances and spoils the plastic in the microwave. The microwave is not that normally dirty so it is not advisable to start with a whitening cleaning product.


  1. Mix a cup of water and some slices of lemon, orange, or lime (don’t forget to squeeze the fruit juice into the water, mix it in a bowl, and add one or tablespoon of vinegar to this).
  2. Put the bowl into the microwave and increase the power to the microwave. Wait until you see the solution boiling.
  3. For 5 minutes allow the solution to cool down, and then remove the solution and clean the surfaces with a sponge.


  1. Clean the whole door. This includes the edges, the sides, and the seals. Put baking soda inside water and damp the sponge into the water; clean those areas and rinse the place with a wet sponge.
  2. If it is an oily window, mix half a cup of water with half a cup of vinegar. Clean and dry.
  3. For very oily grease build-up, clean your microwave with the all-purpose grease cleaner Mrs. Meyers Clean dish soap, or mix the dish soap with water, and get a sponge or cloth to avoid the soap from getting into the vent holes. In order to not destroy your electronics, do not spray the soap on your electronics.


  1. Leave the door open to let the smell come out.
  2. Alternatively, you can place baking soda inside the microwave and then close the door. The baking soda will absorb the smell from the microwave. (Note: this is for light smells).
  3. Remove any leftover food in the microwave and place an odor-absorbing gel in the microwave until it is needed (use this for strong smells).


To eradicate stuck food in the microwave, use Mrs. Meyers Clean dish soap. If grime or dirt got stuck on the turntable, just take the turntable out and wash it thoroughly. Ensure you recheck the instructions of the product you are using before you start cleaning.
