Tip for Tuesday- Cleaning Icing Tips

Big decorating projects leave a big mess.
Cleaning out the icing tips can be such a pain, but I've recently learned a relatively easy trick to get the tips really clean. The bonus is that if you're like me, and use the same tips for both buttercream and royal icing, this method cleans the tips well enough that you don't have to worry about grease getting into your royal icing.

I start by using a toothpick to get as much of the icing out of the tip as possible.

Wash the tips in a sink of soapy water, but you don't have to worry too much about getting them 100% clean.

Dump the tips (and couplers) into a pot of water. I often also add a splash of vinegar just for good measure.

Boil the tips for about 5 minutes.

Drain and rinse them with fresh water. Cool and dry the tips before putting them away.
