How to get tea stains out of a plastic pitcher?

Thank you William.

I used to have a plastic pitcher that I used just for iced tea and it got stained. I found that by putting a little bleach into the pitcher and let it sit over night and that solved the problem.
Here is some info for you
try stirring in some oxiclean powder in water and scrub it. That may take the stain out!
Thank you Maura!
I use baking soda. Unfortunately, some stains are so set, they won't come out, but it's worth a try.
Thank you Kim and I think that might be the case with my pitcher. I think I've waited to long to fix the issue.
Hi Georgia: Before you put anything in your pitcher, give it a bit of a spray with some of that pan spray and wipe it around, getting into all of the corners, edges or whatever you have there. It acts as a barrier. In the meantime, try this:
Or . . . Fill with white vinegar and set in the sun. Depending upon where you live, you might need to wait until next spring. Still in the mid to upper 70's with lots of sun here where I am. Just used vinegar to bleach out carrot and avocado stains off a plastic cutting board.
Thanks Naomie! I will definitely have to wait to next spring as I live in Illinois and it's very cold here but I will do the bleach method and see what happens. Thanks again.
