Why you should choose Tupperware Malaysia
There is a myriad of reasons why Tupperware should be your go-to container brand. Among them is, of course, their airtight seal.

The seal helps keep the food inside fresh for a longer time by vacuuming all the air out of the container.

How to Care for Your Tupperware Containers
Although Tupperware uses the best plastic and materials to make their containers, it’s still important that you take care of them properly. This way, you can use your Tupperware containers longer and safer without having to keep on investing on new Tupperware products.
Disinfect your Tupperware products
Make sure you wash your new Tupperware containers thoroughly, preferably with warm water, to eliminate any dirt and bacteria. You may also choose to disinfect your Tupperware by placing them in a pot of boiling water for a few minutes. Be wary as to not heat them for a long time since prolonged exposure to heat can damage your Tupperware containers.
Store your Tupperware the right way
Afterwards, wipe them dry with a paper towel or a clean cloth and store them separately. It’s recommended that you store your lid and your container separately to keep them air-fresh and keep unwanted odor out of your Tupperware containers.
Heat your Tupperware in the right temperature
While all Tupperware products are microwave-safe and are made without dioxins, it’s best if you refer to the cooking guide of each Tupperware container to find out the ideal temperature for you to heat your meals and your containers in.
Other Tupperware tips
All Tupperware products come with the Lifetime Warranty but it does not cover all types of defect. Things like stains, scratches, or discolorations will not be covered by the warranty. Fret not as there are home remedies that you can make to get rid of the stains, scratches, and discolorations on your Tupperware containers. To get rid of stains, make a baking soda paste and spread them evenly on the container. Wait for several minutes and wash the containers per usual. For any cuts and scratches, use a mild dish soap and a sponge with soft bristles. Do not use sharp utensils, strong dish soap, or abrasive cleaning tools. If there’s an unpleasant odor in your Tupperware container, you can also use the baking soda paste to clean the container. Other than the paste, a concoction of warm water and lemon juice or vinegar works just as well. If you can get your hands on a piece of charcoal, you can seal the charcoal wrapped in newspaper inside the Tupperware product to get rid of the smell.
