A Hot Tip on How to Clean Silicone Baking Mats

  • Silicone mats are a boon to baking, but after time, they tend to develop a greasy layer that never wants to come off.

    Soak your mat

    If your mat is super greasy or has cooked-on particles stuck to it, soak it first. Fill your sink with super hot water and grease-cutting dish detergent. Let the baking mat soak dirty-side down in the water for 10 minutes, then put on some thick dishwashing gloves and scrub the silicone mat with a sponge. This process should remove grease and debris.

    Clean in the dishwasher

    Don't be shy about putting your silicone baking mat in the dishwasher top rack and run it with your other dishes. This is my favorite method because I feel like it removes that oily residue the best. The key here is to put the mat on the top rack. If you still feel a bit of oil on the mat, just run it through one more time.

    Keep in mind that your silicone baking mat will likely always feel a bit tacky and that is normal for a baking mat. You want the baking mat to be free of baked-on debris and coated grease but you still want your food to slide right off. Making sure your new mat gets cleaned thoroughly from the get-go means it will retain its nonstick properties for a long time.

    Are silicone baking mats safe to use?

    Yes, these baking mats are considered safe for use with food. As long as you make sure that your silicone baking mat is marked as food safe, you are free to bake with it. Always note the max temperature that your mat can be heated too. In general, the max heat is 400 to 450 degrees F. Read the care instructions that come with your mat.
