Before putting tomato sauce or other leftovers that may say stain into tupperware, line the container with foil.
Spray the inside of your leftover containers with cooking spray before you put leftovers away that have sauces in them; spaghetti, vegetable soup, chili, goulash, etc. The cooking spray will prevent your container from staining.

If you get spaghetti stains in your Tupperware, you can avoid this by spraying the dish with cooking spray. Also setting your stained dishes in the sun will work as well. No more nasty stains.

How do you stop bowls from staining red from chili or spaghetti sauces?

I am not sure if this works or not but a friend told me to spray the bowl with pam before putting spaghetti sauce in. I am going to try this myself. Cathy from MA
You really can't prevent it, but I do have a way to remove the stains. Fill the bowls or containers with water, and get yourself as cheap of a package of denture cleaner as you can (like Equate, from the Walmart, or any other generic denture cleaner), and put a half of a tablet of that into the bowl. Let it fizz itself out, and viola! The stains will be gone. Works great on coffee and tea stains in mugs, too. ;)
It helps a bit to spray them first with pam cooking spray then add your food.
Rinse out the bowls with Cold water first. Then use warm, soapy water to clean.
I always spray my plastic before putting any tomato products in them. I have NEVER had a stain after do so. It also seems to cut down on smells remaining behind.
I spray mine with Pam. Works everytime. Need to spray the lid too.
