Dear 100 Hour Board,

How do you get white rubber spatulas white when they have that nasty orange greasy color you get when you use them to stir something in tomato sauce?

- Lady G

A: Dear Lady G,

Follow this simple program:
1. Gather all stained spatulas into a single location
2. Also gather a bucket and bleach
3. Dump bleach into bucket
4. Drop spatulas into bucket
5. Walk to door
6. Walk out door
7. Walk to nearest grocery or other kitchen goods store
8. Buy the same number of new spatulas-preferably white
9. Return home
10. Dump old spatulas
11. Clean up bucket and bleach
12. Admire white spatulas

In short, there really isn't any way to get rid of the colored stuff-using harsher chemicals than dish soap will soak stuff into the plastic, and that's not any better than having ugly spatulas.
