How to clean silicone bags?

They can be washed just like any other dish or kitchen tool, with soap and water. If washing by hand be sure not to use an abrasive sponge or scrubber, this could potentially damage the bags. To avoid any mould building up anywhere, make sure you pay attention to crumbs and debris in the corners of the bag or in the creases.

When putting them through the dishwasher make sure you place them upside down with the seal open to allow the water to get inside. It is not recommended to try turning them inside out, this could eventually cause damage to the bags.

How to dry silicone bags?

We recommend air drying by leaving open over an upside down glass or cup before placing them away so they don't get mildew. There is no harm in giving them a little wipe down with a kitchen towel, however avoid types that will leave little fibres stuck on the bags.
