Ways to do this are explained here. You can try them for yourself once you’ve read the steps. It will make plastic more attractive to you.
- To get rid of the great and overall smell, the next good trick to try is the vinegar technique. Just grab some white vinegar and put about half a cup into the plastic. Pour about half a cup of water into the container right after, and allow for it to soak in for a good 24 hours. Vinegar contains natural ingredients that can cleanse it of all the grease that has been built up.
- Grab your plastic container, open the lid, and just place it in the sunlight. Be sure to wash it before placing it in the sun, and then make sure you do not let it melt in the sun either, so keep a close eye on it. Even just placing it on a sunny window sill inside will help.
- Believe it or not, newspapers hold some very amazing power on absorbing moisture and smells. This is why they get so dirty so easily. Simply grab a few newspapers, crumple them up little by little, and then place them inside your plastic container. This will enable them to really grab the odour found in the plastic and really soak it all up, including the annoying grease that may still be left over.
