What Do I Do If Some of My Kitchen Items Have Mold?

Do you ask yourself, “What Do I Do If Some of My Kitchen Items Have Mold?” Throwing items like a Tupperware/water bottle because of mold can be wasteful. In this article, we’ll tell you what to throw out and what to wash properly and keep.

What Do I Do If Some of My Kitchen Items Have Mold

Let’s imagine all of your Tupperwares and sport water bottles were moldy and the mold experts at Rainbow International Restoration were right there with you advising you on the proper clean up.

Let’s start off by cleaning mold off of your sport water bottles:

  • Boiling water method:  Boil bottle then let sit several hours, then scrub vigorously with a bottle brush and soap. (Metal water bottles)
  • Baking soda: Add 1-2 teaspoons to warm water, soak a few hours, then wash.
  • White vinegar:  Let water bottle sit overnight in white vinegar. Wash thoroughly in the morning and air dry.
  • Bleach & baking soda: Add 1 tsp baking soda and ½ teaspoon of bleach in a bowl. Soak bottle and parts within 4-6 hours. Wash and rinse thoroughly.

Now What Should You do About Your Tupperwares?

Tupperwares are simple. First off, you should always invest in glass tupperwares because they are healthier for you- especially if you make you lunches and have to heat them up in the microwave. Second, if you find mold in a glass Tupperware, you can always wash it right off.

If you have plastic Tupperwares, you could wash it off, but it might be better for you to recycle it. Cuts in plastic Tupperwares could cause more microbial growth.
