How do you get the smell of the sauce out of the seal ring stamped on the lid? Even with soaking it in baking soda water I can still smell sauce. I'd hate to put something into one of those jars and have it taste a bit like tomato. Cinnamon Prego anyone?
I tend to reuse more neutral smelling jars.
I store my excess spices in the basement. The cinnamon is still in the plastic jar it came in; the last time I filled my small jar in the pantry the stored stuff was still as fresh as when it was bought. I find even my Penzeys stay fresh in the plastic bags their sold in.
