DH put something in the dishwasher, obviously not well rinsed, w/MIL's sauce on it. Every white plastic lid that was in there, is now orange. This never happens w/my sauce. I am convinced it has to do with fat content, as I do not use a lot of oil. Any suggestions for getting rid of the discolouration?

The best thing for discoloration on plastic, esp the tomato sauce based ones, is sunning it! I actually knew about this as a teenager, and it really works.

YOu can also run some vegetable oil on the stain and it will take the stain off. Sometimes it doesn't work with older stains, but most of the time it works.
