Microwave water to very hot and pour over bowels and utensils. I want one of those insta-hot spouts on my sinkicon_smile.gif

I have this problem also and I've found if I put them into the dishwasher right away, the residue is still there. I usually fill the sink with hot water and Dawn and let them soak for awhile before putting them in the dishwasher. the Dawn cuts the grease residue.

Agree totally with the above statement regarding Dawn dish soap. It really cuts the grease!

I've found the same true about Dawn, too. When I am working on a project, I keep a small prep bowl of hot water and Dawn by the sink, so I can put the tips right in to soak as I finish with them.

I do not have a dishwasher and I have no problem getting the grease off my tools with hot water and dish soap. I've never had to soak them.
