Now I'm going to show you how to take carrot stains out off plastic utensils. Usually when you make carrot juice or you grate a carrot for a carrot cake, or just for a carrot salad. If you use a plastic dish or food processor, it leaves the carotene stains, leaves this orange stain which is very hard to remove, even with soap. The option is to use bleach but if you don't want to use bleach, I have another tip for you. You can take oil, you can use either canola oil or any other oil and what we do is take cotton. Go over the utensil, you can see the cotton turned orange and the utensil turned white again. Go from the other side too, the inside. and do it form the inside too. Now you have a cleansed grater, you just have to wash it with soap and water and it's ready to be used again.
