2/5Keep the tiffin box open: Many people keep the tiffin box closed after washing. It does not remove the smell. Rather remains. So after washing, keep it upside down in a certain place in the open. If you keep it in that condition for about five-six hours, you will see that the smell will gradually disappear. (Freepik)
3/5Lemon peel: Lemon peel can be used to clean the tiffin box without throwing it away. The citric acid in the lemon peel cleans dishes as well as removes odors. Boil lemon peel in water and keep that water in tiffin box for half an hour. Then wash off with plain water. (Freepik)
4/5Cinnamon: Tiffin box odor can be easily removed by using cinnamon. It has antibacterial properties, which reduce the smell of tiffin boxes. Boil water and cinnamon in a pot and cool it slightly. Pour this water in the tiffin box and keep it for ten to fifteen minutes. Then rinse well with water. (Freepik)
