What is the best way to clean piping bags? I have found hand washing with laundry detergent works for me, but is it better to clean them in the dishwasher or just replace them when they get stained and ugly?
I have always used Dawn dish soap to clean mine...and then hung them on a line with clothespins to dry. Just a couple small nails on each of the cupboards above the sink, string a cord between the nails and pin up the bags to dry. Now I am wondering how others care for theirs.
I use the disposable ones. Super easy and just throw away when you are done. I put my tips and couplers in a glass of hot sudsy water with Dawn detergent to soak. You can buy them in bulk and they do not costs all that much.
I used to wash in either dishwashing detergent or laundry detergent. Now I used disposable ones and throw away. Much easier, especially when dealing with buttery substances.
Dawn dishsoap and hang to dry. I have used disposable ones but the slick plastic gives me less grip/control and my hands get so tired!
