Silicone Care

Maintenance tips for safe and thorough cleaning of our products designed entirely of food grade silicone. 

Why does food suddenly taste like soap?

Sometimes silicone products can retain oil residue on their surfaces. If you experience a change in food taste (tastes like soap or plastic) it is because your silicone product has oil residue that has built up on the surface. White residue on silicone after dishwashing is an indicator of a buildup of oil residue from your dish soap. There’s no need to worry as this can be easily be avoided and fixed.


How can this be avoided?

In order to avoid this use any dish soap that does not contain essential oils, antibacterial agents, or moisturizers. These are all oils that can stick to silicone and can cause an unpleasant taste often described as being soap or plastic-like. We recommend using an unscented cleaner such as ATTITUDE dish soap.


How can I fix this?

Use a fresh lemon or lime to remove the oil residue. Cut and rub the lemon all over the silicone and let sit for approximately 10-15 minutes and then thoroughly rinse. You can also make a paste of white vinegar and baking soda. Put the paste all over the silicone, let dry, and rinse. You can also safely boil our products to sanitize or use hydrogen peroxide as outlined in our stain removal instructions.

How can I remove stains from my silicone products?

Due to the fact that we only food-grade silicone, our products are generally stain resistant, but it doesn’t mean that they aren’t stain proof. Some foods like pasta sauce and curry may leave a stain, especially when left on the silicone for extended periods of time. There’s no need to worry as stains can easily be removed using hydrogen peroxide.

Simply cover the stained area with hydrogen peroxide (available at grocery stores and pharmacies) and let sit overnight or up to one day. If the stain extends up the sides you can mix baking soda with the hydrogen peroxide to make a paste and coat the stained surface. Hydrogen peroxide is safe for silicone and not only removes stains but cleans the silicone too.

WARNING! Make sure not to use abrasive products or brushes to clean your products. This will damage the surface of your items.
