removes stains and odors
I wanted to store my foot fizzies in a pimento jar, but the lid stunk! I washed it, boiled it, soaked it in baking soda and vinegar - nothing worked to remove the smell.
I searched online and they said pickle and marinara sauce wouldn't go away - ha! someone else begs to differ ;)

    let it sit and bubble in the sun for a few hours until it's looking whiter.
    you might need to refill the peroxide if it's too hot and it evaporates, so just check it every now and then to make sure everything you loosened up isn't baking back on.

    it might still look like it has residue in it, but that'll wipe away when you wash it.

    I love sniffing my sunbleached lids - it's such a nice clean scent!
