I soak mine in really really hot water for about 10 minutes then put on the sexy yellow gloves and spray them with the sink hose. A quick dunk and hand wash in soapy water and they are good to go again.

I don't use the dishwasher for any of my cake stuff since I turned my oval pans all funny white looking in it. icon_redface.gif

I chuck mine in hot soapy water as I'm finished with them. I then just rise them out and dry on kitchen paper

This is going to sound strange, but I put mine in a bowl completely covered with water and a few drops of dish liquid. Microwave for about 2 min. Squeaky clean!

I do the same thing (learned it here) and it works sooooo well. If you leave the bowl in the micro for awhile after it also steams the microwave clean too.

I work in a business where more than just the cake decorators clean the icing tips. Some of our employees accidentally put our tips in the sanitizer water and now there is rust on some of them. Does anyone know how to get that off or do we just need to buy new tips? We have quite a few tips and would hate to buy an entire new set so I would appreciate if anyone knows a good rust remover that can be used around food.

Guess it wouldnt hurt to dry it

I hate cleaning up after I bake so I threw my tips in the dishwasher. The tips came out discolored and one of the tips had rust on it. So now I soak them in hot water. I used Brasso to clean up the spots on the OUTSIDE of the tips. The inside of the tips were fine. You might want to buy new ones if it's really bad!

Iuse the microwave trick too and it works great!

TSMarjorie Posted 30 Nov 2013 , 3:20am

Metal in the microwave for 2 minutes?

daprincessnora Posted 30 Nov 2013 , 4:59am

AHot soapy water too, might trying that microwave method though

Chellescakes Posted 30 Nov 2013 , 6:21am

Microwave here too , just make sure they are well covered and don't be tempted to touch them when you take them out straight away.

AI know that this post is kinda old but.....I cut the coupler from my decorating bag and put all of my tips, into a boiler and boil them to a rolling boil. the couplers, tips, the decorating bag portion i cut off and all.....i pour it down the kitchen sink , tips and all and leave the tips and couplers in the sink in the drain. then i boil another pot of water , with nothing in it, bring it to a rapid boil and pour it down the sink behind the first pot, over the tips and couplers. The hot water makes it easier for the decorating bag to release from the coupler.I save a little of that hot water and pour it into a cup with dawn in it and put the couplers and tips in that cup and let it soak. I throw the decortaing bag plastic away, put all the tips into a dishwasher mesh bag I got from wilton , and then i put it into the dish washer, i hate washing tips one by one...i still use my tip brush on occasion though, but this is the way i learned at a bakery i used to work at.

I had a maid at my home .She taught me all  her professional house cleaning tips.She used to bake cake for me occasionally(yummy!).I still remember how carefully she made the icing in those cakes...After putting icing on cakes she used to wash the plates with hot water and some kind of dish washing liquid(forgot its name.She use to bring that when comes to works).Now I really miss her!But more than that miss those freshly baked cakes!
