    Default Chili stains

    Hi, new to this group and hoping someone can help us. We recently
    purchased a food processor. My wife made up a chili sauce using whole
    chilies in the processor. Now the bowl [plastic] is stained. Washing and
    soaking with dish washing detergent is not getting rid of the stain. Has
    anyone here had experience with this and successfully been able to
    remove the stain.
    Any advice gratefully appreciated.

    Personally, I think it's better to live with stains that will
    eventually wear off than it is to scratch up the bowl with overly
    abrasive materials. -aem

    Sunlight. The stain has penetrated the plastic,
    and no abrasive or chemical bleach will be effective
    without causing worse damage.

    Oxygen bleach, or even hydrogen peroxide, may help to oxidize the stain and
    will not hurt the plastic. Do not use chlorine bleach (Clorox).

    You will have to live with it...eventually, it will come off. Next
    time....spray the interior with Pam.

    Oh...did you try Dawn dish soap. It can do some amazing things.

    Hey TR, you beat me to the punch... when I stain my cutting boards I
    just set them outside for a day or so and it gets it really nice and
    bright I was at a Pampered Chef party and was given that bit of
    info. Although I'll wash it in cold water first to get it clean. Hot
    water makes it set... but then you can stick it outside
    cheers!

    Hi Wayne,

    Is that stuff available in your area? I ask because I cannot
    find it any longer, and have heard that it may no longer be
    distributed at all.

    Wow!! So many replies all so quickly. Thank you all and with my
    apologies. I thought the stain was from chilies. It was from curry, my
    wife later told me. Even stranger, I'm just now making a cheese cake.
    Processed the biscuits and butter in the bowl for the crust then cleaned
    it. The 'curry' stains washed out. Still remained on the white plastic
    of the cutting blade shaft though. My wife is now laughing and looking
    forward to curry flavoured cheese cake.

    Kenneth, I bought 2 bottles a couple of months ago, so I assume it's still
    out there,. However, as fast as things change, it could be off the shelves
    by now.
