    Original blue Dawn liquid soap always works for me. Hope this helps.

    Yes, Dawn should do the trick, if not add some baking soda to the Dawn to make a paste and scrub with that.

    I would wipe each piece down with lemon juice to not only take out the stickiness but to help bleach any discoloration.

  • Actually, sometimes you have to fight fire with fire... so to speak. The stickiness may be caused from old oils on the tupperware. Just like some labels that don't come off with water soluble cleaner, oil is the key to cleaning it off. Here is a post showing the way I clean those sticky labels off.

    If you are referring to the "rubbery" parts, you probably will not be able to, but if the warranty is still the same, you can get them replaced.

    Soak it in hot water with a little bleach. Should remove all and any residue.

    Add some drops of lemon oil to your water when you wash dishes.... you will be amazed at all your dishes.... but it has worked for me on the older Tupperware I have.
