Cleaner?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

 

As you probably know, it can be difficult to clean icing, especially buttercream from hands, dishes, and tools.  Can anyone recommend an awesome cleaner to help with this?  Industrial strength?  Brand names please?

 

Thanks!

What about soaking the equipment in just plain hot hot water overnight?

That will work yes, but they will still be greasy from the vegetable shortening and butter.  Also, I typically need to wash and reuse the tools immediately and don't have time to wait.  It then makes my hands all slippery making it hard to pipe and use the decorating bag.  Just thought that someone out there might know of a stronger cleaner. :)

Hot water soak will help, yes.  But typically I need to wash and reuse the tools right away.  The vegetable shortening and butter will also make my hands slippery as I wash and even after I wash my hands.  This makes it hard to manage the decorating bags and pipe, etc.  Just thought that someone may know of a heavier duty cleaner out there :)

Maybe just double up on your supplies and equipment.

You did not mention where or why or for whom you are washing equipment and tools and you are in school and will at some point need this info so ....

Until then Dawn works great when you need squeeky clean results.

Any dish detergent and hot water - what have you tried so far?  I never had any problem with the cheapo dish detergent if i use hot water, which melts the butter - the detergent removes traces of grease.

Hi,

I find with my things that if I use "Dawn" dish detergent & super HOT water, let it rest in the sink until you can take a break from the other thing Ur doing, & by the time U get bak, it has melted away. Especially "grease, butter, eggs & etc" hope this helps... Happy Cleaning
