Hi Reena,

I have two of your books and find them very helpful. However, I could not find anythng about cleaning silicone cookie sheet liners and utensils. Hope you can help.



Dear Nancy,

Silicone is a non-porous option for cook and bake ware. Some people love it while others will drive to the ends of the earth to avoid it. For daily cleaning, use a little warm, soapy water or toss them into the dishwasher. For occasional "Spring Cleaning", use my 'Corellanbunga' recipe. In a large pot combine: 4 cups water, 3 cups vinegar and 2 tbps. citric acid. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from water and scrub with an S.O.S. pad and dish soap. The faster you clean-up after each use, the easier the task.
