Silicone Items

  • Avoid using abrasive sponges and cleaners.
  • Dishwasher safe, top rack only.
  • Hand wash using a gentle unscented grease-fighting dish soap with warm water and air dry.


  • We recommend using unscented soaps and detergents. Dish soaps that are scented, contain essential oils, antibacterial agents, and moisturizers stick to silicone and leave a soapy aftertaste.
  • It is also best to use gel dish detergent over powder or pods to avoid a soapy aftertaste.

Tips to Remove Odors:

  • Boil your silicone for 30 min. Handle with potholders or tongs and let cool completely. You can add a cup of white vinegar to water; vinegar will help to reduce mineral build-up from hard water and can be used regularly without harming the dish. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
  • Rub a cut lemon or lime all over the silicone, followed by a mixture of white vinegar and baking soda (1 tbsp. of white vinegar and 2 tbsp. of baking soda). Allow the coated dish to sit overnight. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

Tips 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.
