I don't know if this is the right forum, but here goes. Why is it so difficult to get my silpats clean? I wash in hot, soapy water and still the shadows of the cookies I just baked are still there. They even tend to smear when I rub it with my finger.
I have gotten them clean once or twice. It just seems something is not right here. I mean, hot, soapy water, right in my dishpan.
They never look clean, but how can they not be? UGH!
My sister gave me some of hers a few years ago, which were not in good shape IMO....I used a paste of baking soda to "scrub" them and that seemed to do the job.
Don't know how to clean up your SilPat but I use parchment paper to bake cookies with - clean up is in the trash bag!
I was using parchment, but my DH bought me 2 mats for my birthday. I can't not use them, he is such a great guy. And I do love them. Its just the buttery residue that seems hard to get off.
Probably another washing will do the trick, but I thought these made your life simplier!!
I use my silpats to roll out my fondant and gumpaste when working on my design pieces. The mat stays in one place on the table and it's really easy to keep it in place while rolling it out and cutting out the designs. I could never do without it
I've always placed mine as flat as possible on the top rack in the dishwasher. So far, so good and I use mine all the time.
