Why is our Tuperware etching?

Our T ware seems to be developing an etching problem. Even if we hand wash the pieces, the clear tubs seem to be having a reaction with something. Anyone else have this problem??? Mary Ann

I havn't a clue. I have many Tupperware pieces, none are etched and all are hand washed. Anything harder than plastic (such as a metal spoon) will scratch Tupperware.

I've had tomato sauce dissolve the surface of some plastic containers.
I use left-over cottage cheese containers for leftover pasta sauce so they can be thrown away.

It's been ages ago, but I have successfully removed stains from Tupperware with a bleach and water solution. You'll probably need to let it soak for a lonnnngggg while.
