Cleaning Silicon Cupcake Molds
However, I hate cleaning them. Really. I dream of the day I can just throw all of them into a machine and they scrub out all the baked on crumbs and oil.
That day is yet to come. So I have to resort myself to finding a way to scrub each one, which is quite difficult and time consuming as they are floppy and see those ridges? They are crumb collectors! Argh!
Yesterday I had used some super large ones to make cakecups, and while I was up to my elbows in soap, I came up a way to at least clean each one properly. The images explain it all, but basically, you turn the mould inside out over a tea cup, or some other round object, scrub and move onto the next. The teacup gives you a firm base to scrub on, which gives you cleaner wash.
While im typing this, im thinking about a electronic juicing machine... convert the pike into a scrubbing head and my problems may be solved! Just what my kitchen needs. Another appliance!
