Nordlife Life Hack: How to Clean Your Silicone Tableware of Smells & Odours 

We love kids’ silicone tableware for so many reasons – it’s non-toxic, dishwasher-safe, and virtually indestructible (aka toddler-proof). High quality silicone tableware can last for years, but when used for more pungent foods like onions and garlic, you might notice some lingering scents over time.

Wondering how to properly “deep clean” your silicone tableware and remove those pesky odours? You’re not alone! It’s a common practice in commercial kitchens to regularly “bake” their silicone spatulas to remove any smells of garlic, strong marinades, onions and sometimes even the dishwashing detergent.

Your Nordlife tableware should be mostly odour-resistant, but if you happen to have some lingering scents, not to worry! We’ve got a quick and easy way to remove them.

Cleaning instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 150-200°C
  2. Pop your silicone tableware in for 15-30 minutes
  3. Remove the tableware from your oven and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before use

It’s as easy as that! The heat from your oven will naturally remove any odours that have been absorbed by the silicone and you can continue to snack, sip, slurp and enjoy. For daily cleaning, hand wash your silicone tableware or simply pop it in your dishwasher at a low temperature (30°C).

We carry a wide range of silicone tableware for kids, made by some of our favorite brands ever – Liewood, Konges Sløjd & We Might Be Tiny. Not only is all their tableware super cute and practical, it’s also made from high quality, non-toxic materials.

Our Liewood baby plates, cups, bowls, straws, and moulds are made with 100% LFGB approved food-grade silicone and are oven and microwave safe up to 230°C. All of our kids’ tableware is free from BPA and phthalates, and adheres to the highest Food Safety standards in Europe (which are even stricter than the FDA Standards in Australia and the US!).

*NOTE: Our Liewood ‘Liva’ silicone baby spoons are made with reinforcements in the center and can not be used in the microwave and oven.
