What's the best way to look after my silicone products?

Let's talk about silicone, shall we? Why do we use so much of it and what's even good about it?

First off, it's all about safety. Our silicone goodies are BPA-free and non-toxic, so you can breathe easy knowing your little one is holding, biting, eating and drinking from a safe substance. 

But that's not all! These babies are practically indestructible. We're talking microwave, dishwasher, oven, and freezer safe, plus they can't smash or shatter.  You name it, silicone can handle it. They're like the superheroes of kitchenware, ready to tackle any cooking or chilling task you throw their way. But where silicone really levels up is with its amazing ability to resist stains.  It's super easy to wash and it's bacteria and mould resistant.

But hey, everyone needs a little TLC from time to time. So, here's a nifty trick to bring your silicone goodies back to life, especially if you're noticing any strange smells or tastes coming from your silicone:

  1. Preheat your oven to 160°C or above. 
  2. Pop your silicone pieces into the oven and let them hang out for about 20 minutes. You can even just add them to the oven whilst you cook other things. 
  3. Carefully take them out and plop them into the sink with some warm soapy water. Give them a little bath.
  4. Once they're cool enough to handle, grab something scrubby and gently scrub away any residue.
  5. Rinse them with boiling water, and then let them air dry. They'll be as good as new, ready to get messy again.

Too easy. This is our favourite way to refresh our silicone but the big wide Web has some other cool ideas too - just find what works for you!
