    Hi,
    I need to know whether there are any tips to solve this problem? I carry Tupperware for lunch. It is not possible for me to wash the lunch box in office. I wash it in evening at home. Though lunch box is clean, the smell of previous day lunch remains. Is there anyway to prevent it?

    Couple of things you can do. You can layer it with Wax paper or Aluminum foil. Then put the food on the top. If it is foil, then you can't microwave.

    Put three fourth water in the container add lemon and put it in the microwave for few min. change the water and do it again. Or you can use baking soda instead of lemon too. The smell goes away.

    Good luck.:hiya:hiya:hiya:hiya

    one more thing, wipe the dirty lunch box with paper towel as soon as finished the lunch.

    Hi Blackbeauty,

    The issue is with tupperware box.

    I too used to face the same issue with my daughter's lunch box. She used to take tupperware box for lunch and the smell remains no matter how well i wash the box. So i switched to Lock & Lock and now i dont face this problem.
