Let’s pretend that my pantry looks like this. (It’s doesn’t.) But, I have acquired quite the collection of plastic storage containers from ordering takeout. I use them all the time for food storage, so they can get pretty gross. This year my spring cleaning routine includes scrubbing these puppies down with some baking soda.
Here’s the quick and not-so-dirty how-to for cleaning up plastic food storage containers from the folks at ARM & HAMMER Baking Soda:

In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to enter and complete the Boston Marathon as a numbered entry. She registered under the gender-neutral name of “K.V. Switzer”. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” however, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire Marathon. These photographs taken of the incident made world headlines.
