Cleaning a white plastic dish

I have a white plastic dish I think is supposed to be used for pancake batter that has measurement markings on its side and a spoute. We use this dish to eat popcorn and it has gotten a yellow circle around the inside of its wide bottom. Nothing will take this buttery stain away. How to get rid of this stain?

Did you try scrubbing it with baking soda? That is my answer to a lot of stain issues.

Have you tried a bleach solution...when Dh and I got together he had these one litre plastic Pepsi cups that he used for iced tea. The stains were well, stains.....one day I thru them in the sink with a bleach solution and he almost fell over....."How'd you get them out...I've tried everything!!!" Try it and see.

It's also great for your artificial plants! Just dump them in a solution of bleach and hot water for 2-3 minutes and they're like new! I thought my white roses were a cream color until I tried this and, now, they're as white as snow!

You can also try using one of those Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. Just wash it well after. I swear by them--they will clean absolutely anything. Marks on the wall, tire rims, heel marks on flooring, patio furniture. I could go on and on--I'm hooked on them!
