Get rid of food stains in dishes by soaking them in a solution of water and bleach.
This pretty little bowl got stained months ago after I left it dirty, in the sink – overnight. I quickly began scrubbing it the next morning when the stain was discovered, as if the stain might not already be set.
Fast forward a few months, many months and the stain is still there. This time though, instead of washing with water and soap, I filled it up with water, added a few tablespoons of bleach and let it soak.
Voila. Stain vanished within an hour.
