I've Got a Sink Full
My sink is full of Tupperware in various shades of dingy yellow. I am not such a big fan of plastic, but I do like the cake carriers and those round things...they work great for carting cupcakes. Anyway, as you can see, the problem is the dinginess. I found a white vinegar solution suggested and have decided to give that a try. I'll let you know what I think. It's soaking.
Also found a gal who uses white vinegar as a facial wash. Yes, her face. So, naturally, I did what any woman would do with a gallon of white vinegar and a face that needed washing. She says that her face is youthful and soft. What do I say? Well, my face was much softer after I washed it with vinegar. Let me get back to you on that youthful bit.

Wow - a two-fer. Washing your face and tupperware at the same time! I wonder if the vinegar works as an astringent. Good Luck!ReplyDelete
Sorry, Vee, I didn't realize my son was logged onto my account. I left the above comment :)ReplyDelete
I think the smell would do me in! I too have a cupboard full of dinginess....let me know if it works! It is throwing it down here - grey wet and cold and cupboards may be a good idea. Groan......ReplyDelete
Hmmm, I never thought of pickling myself to preserve my youthful luster ;c) I am not so sure I could try this method because of the smell.ReplyDelete
I'll be interested in the outcome of your cleanings experiment. I have a couple of those plastic containers that I was thinking of tossing.
Happy Monday Vee!
I go through TONS of vinegar cleaning. We have breathing issues in our home, and i dont want to use anything too caustic because we have cats as well...i clean my wood floors with vinegar diluted in very hot water, with just a tiny bit of dish liquid. I make sure the sponge mop is wrung out really well...my floors sparkle, without any waxing either. As far as the face wash..i dont know if i could go around smelling like a salad, but im sure its a good toner for your skin. ps...just LOVE your blogReplyDelete
Please let me know how that works for you! the tupperware part. I have stopped buying tupperware for the most part due to the sticky yellow feel...I too like to store goodies but throw it away once the tupperware gets icky.ReplyDelete
Have a great day!
I have a little tag for you if you get time :)
I use white vinegar for lots of things...but never for skincare. Sounds like something new to try though...I love the 'pickling' comment :-)ReplyDelete
I too really like the Tupperware cake and pie carriers. It seems Tupperware gets sticky and yellow when it isn't used much. It is so expensive that I hate to throw it out so I'm eagerly waiting your verdict on the vinegar.ReplyDelete
Haha...well they do say vinegar has a lot of uses...my husband drinks it for his achy joints or makes "joggin' in a jug" with some juice added. My mother used to rinse my thick hair with it instead of buying me conditioner :(ReplyDelete
Vinegar is quite an awesome "thing"! I'm going to try it on my old Tupperware to see what happens.
Two of our dogs were extemely ill after we returned from vacation years ago, well you can use your imagination! We cleaned the carpet twice but the smell was not going away! We then soaked the spots with white distilled vinegar, then dumped baking soda on top. You let it dry for 12-24 hrs, vacuum up the baking soda, then clean the carpet again. The smell, stain, everything bad is GONE! It's like a little miracle! Works on areas that cats like to frequent with accidents too.
Great post! Let us know about the face thing!! I need to look younger for sure.
I love white vinegar!! It's good for so many things.....as well as a quick salad dressing...LOL.ReplyDelete
Have a great day!
Miss Sandy and I are of the same mind re: the pickling. I smiled. Isn't white vinegar amazing in its range of uses? Cost effective too! I think I'll skip the facial though I could use a youthful glow! ~KathyReplyDelete
Vinegar for washing our face? I've never heard of that one before. But, at the very least, I bet it gives off a nice clean scent! :)ReplyDelete
wow what great tips Vee, I wonder how you would best get the vinegar on your face, use a washcloth I suppose, I love balsamic vinegar, I wouldn't mind bathing in that stuff!!ReplyDelete
I buy white vinegar by the gallon too, and I use it for cooking and cleaning ...never tried it as a face rejuvenator, though!
I soak my Tupperware in electric dishwashing liquid (Cascade) and hot water for about an hour in the sink and I find the bleach in the electric
solution does the trick as far as whitening them and removing stains. I'm curious to know how the vinegar soak turns out!
I have some yellowed tupperware too. If it works for you I'll give it a try too.ReplyDelete
Vinegar might make your face soft but don't you smell like a salad? :-)
I use lots of white vinegar for cleaning but I've never heard of using it as a face wash. That's got to be the cheapest face wash ever! Oh, that little pumpkin turkey is just from Hobby Lobby - 50% off.ReplyDelete
This is a great tip to know. Hmm I am wondering what else this might work on too.ReplyDelete
You're invited to a Christmas Fair on November 21st on my blog. If you click on the badge on the sidebar it will lead you to the information.
Have a wonderful day.
My daughter has been urging me to use green cleaners. But I have never really used potent chemicals...just mostly plain soap and water. I love the idea of washing with vinegar and a tad of soap. I will be waiting to hear how the Tupperware fares.ReplyDelete
I have tried this and it does work with the plastic. I have not use on my face. Good idea though...Have a great day..m..ReplyDelete
I have to admit, I hate tubberware, always have. I don't like how it discolors or trying to get it all to fit in my cupboards.ReplyDelete
I don't own any and won't....but hope your vinegar experiment works for ya missy! ;)
I've heard of washing your face with olive oil, but vinegar, hmmmmm sounds stinky! ;)
Vinegar works great for so many things. I use it for odors in the kitchen and laundry.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. It's nice to know someone was interested. I just posted an update. Things have been going so fast and I have been so exhausted, but we have gotten so much accomplished that it feels good, too.Lately I have been a "lurker" to so many blogs as I have been just too busy and tired to comment. But hopefully we'll get a slight break now.
I use a vinegar wash on my teacups because it is less abrasive. I didn't know about the face thing. I'm going to try that!ReplyDelete
I've learned something new today! Vinegar to whiten my plastics and wash my face!ReplyDelete
Hmmm - let me know how the Tupperware works out. I love those cupcake containers and still want one. And I want one of the cake carriers too, but they are different now and not as good as my Mum's.ReplyDelete
I don't know about vinegar on your face. Vinegar is a mild acid (acetic acid), one of the weakest acids, but still....I wouldn't put it on my face!
Hope you are well and had a good veteran's day. Here in Canada it is Remembrance Day and we listened to a lot of war stories on the radio and old-time radio shows. We didn't go out to a service this year as I am still fighting the flu.
Hope all is GREAT! xox Terri
I can't wait to hear the results, Vee...and I want to comment on the post above...Veterans...they are our true heroes and we should thank them for their service no matter where we find them...great post...ReplyDelete
Beautiful post above!ReplyDelete
