Why have my silicone handles become 'sticky'?
Sticky film build up on silicone or rubberized handles can occur when grease or oils are allowed to be absorbed into the handle surface. This can leave a sticky residue feeling to the touch, even after regular washing. We recommend the following tips to help remove the residue:
- Mix cutting liquid dish soap and water and wash the handle thoroughly.
- After the handle is dry, use rubbing alcohol and a clean cloth to wipe the handle.
- If the sticky surface remains, mix some baking soda with water to create a thick paste that is about the consistency of toothpaste. Rub the paste over the surface with a cloth, then rinse clean.
