Silicone Items

  • Avoid using abrasive sponges and cleaners.
  • Hand wash using a gentle grease-fighting dish soap like Dawn (Mom recommended) with warm water and air dry. We also suggest only using unscented, natural, non-oily soaps and detergents. Dish soaps that contain essential oils, antibacterial agents, and moisturizers stick to silicone and leave a soapy after-taste.
  • Top-rack dishwasher safe - We recommend using gel dish detergent over powder pods to avoid soapy aftertaste.

To remove odors:

1. Try using a rinse agent in your dishwasher to reduce mineral build-up. Gel pods or liquid dish detergent recommended.

2. Submerge the dish in a mixture of boiling hot water and white vinegar using the ratio of 1 cup of vinegar for every two cups of hot water. Soak for 30 minutes and then scrub with a gentle cleaning sponge. White vinegar is used to reduce mineral build-up from hard water and can be used regularly without harming the dish. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

3. Coat the dish with a mixture of white vinegar and baking soda using the ratio of 1 tbsp. of white vinegar to 2 tbsp. of baking soda. Allow the coated dish to sit overnight. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

4. Boil your silicone for 30 min. Handle with potholders or tongs and let cool completely.

5. Rub a cut lemon or lime all over the silicone and let sit for 10 minutes. Rinse with warm soapy water or run through the dishwasher and dry.

To remove stains:

Sometimes silicone can discolor with certain stubborn foods. To remove stains, wash your items according to our suggested care instructions and then naturally bleach them in the sun for a few hours to dry.
