How do you clean silicone molds

The good news is that high-quality silicone bakeware is non-porous, so it won't absorb food particles or bacteria. The best way to clean them is to wash it in warm, soapy water. You can also use a mild dishwashing detergent. If there are stubborn stains, you can try scrubbing the mold with a soft-bristled brush. Rinse the mold thoroughly before using it again. You can also put it in the dishwasher on the top rack. Just be sure to use a gentle cycle and let the mold air dry afterwards. With just a little bit of care, your handy tools will last for years.
