Grow-silicone company is a leading silicone manufacturer in China. We have focused on the silicone industry for 10 years and have a very good understanding of the characteristics and performance of silicone.
Is silicone toxic?
Silicone is a synthetic material that is usually non-toxic and does not release toxic substances even under extreme conditions such as high temperatures. Therefore, silicone is usually used as a raw material for furniture.
Standard silicone can usually withstand temperatures ranging from -40°C to +240°C. If some other special substances are added, some of the chemical properties of the silica gel can be changed and it can withstand higher temperatures.
can silicone go in the oven?
Under normal circumstances, it is ok, but it depends on the actual situation. If the oven temperature is too high, the silicone mat cannot be placed directly on the metal bracket of the oven. A high-temperature insulation mat is also needed, such as our customized silicone baking mat (https: //www.grow-silicone.com/wholesale-custom-silicone-baking-mat-dough-rolling-matoven-linerfondant-pie-crust-mat/) is the best-selling one on Amazon and can reach up to 240 degrees , so please read the instructions carefully when using at high temperatures.
Silicone household products are generally reusable and have a short service life, so silicone products need to be cleaned frequently.
How to clean silicone?
Cleaning silicone is very simple and routine. Just wash it normally with warm water and mild detergent.
For harder stains:
Vinegar: For stubborn stains or odors, you can try soaking silicone items in a mixture of vinegar and water (1:1 ratio) for several hours. Then, rinse and dry as usual.
Baking soda: Make a mixture of baking soda and water, apply it to the stain, rub gently, then rinse and dry.
Disinfectant alcohol: Apply a small amount of disinfectant alcohol to the cloth and wipe the silicone surface. Then let it dry naturally.
