Tips for Caring For Your Cake Decorating Supplies
The last thing you want to do is to invest a lot of money into cake decorating supplies, only to find that some have gone missing or have become damaged. It happens to a lot of people and then they are stuck no longer being able to make their special creations until they can find a replacement for what they lost. The following are tips to consider if you want your supplies to last for years to come.
Keep Them Out Of the Dishwasher
Okay, so you might have a few decorating supplies that state that they are dishwasher safe. Even if that were the case, you might still want to refrain from putting them in there. The reason is that many of your decorating supplies will be hard to properly clean in a dishwasher. Also, you will still run the risk of the supplies becoming damaged from the rough cycling of the dishwasher. Even if it would take several times of being in the dishwasher for that to happen, you pay too much money to put any of your supplies at risk.
Rinse Them Carefully
It is important to make sure that you are carefully rinsing your decorating supplies so that you are not leaving any soap residue behind. The longer soap residue sits on your supplies, the more it can eat away at the material, especially if they are rubber pieces. Also, you would hate to never spot the soap residue until you are tasting it in your wonderful creations.
Keep Them Organized
Nothing ruins decorating supplies faster than not keeping them organized. If they are simply tossed in a drawer or cabinet, they are likely to become lost, chipped, or broken. Find a nice organizer for your kitchen and start putting everything away in that. Not only will you be protecting the supplies for decorating your cakes, but you will make the process of decorating go a lot smoother for you since everything will now be able to be found a lot quicker.
With those few helpful tips in mind, you should now find that it is going to be a lot easier to keep your supplies for cake decorating in the best possible shape. By doing this, you will have surely protected your investment.
