So, what I tried this weekend was to fill good amount of icing into a gallon ziploc bag and push it to the end and twist the sealed bag into a cone. I snipped the corner and dumped this inside the featherweight bag. Iced and luckily I had nothing left in the ziploc bag. Just tossed it and rinsed the almost clean bag. Just had to clean the tip that's all. I know we can wash them in the dish washer, but even then I like to get the grease out and then put in the dish washer. This way, I didn't have to spend 10 minutes scrubbing the bag.
I don't know if this is helpful to anyone, but just thought to share it.
Thanks for sharing this! It will make it a lot easier for me. I also use the icer tip with the large featherweight bag and spend way too long cleaning the grease off when I'm done. Will do this next time
