My TUM TUM silicone products smell of soap.  What can I do?

Silicone is an odourless material. However, some strong smelling soaps and dishwasher detergents can become absorbed. To rectify this issue we recommend the following methods, depending upon the strength of the odour: 

  1. Place silicone tableware in boiling water to sterilize it.
  2. Submerge it in a mixture of hot water and white vinegar (one cup of vinegar to 2 cups of water ratio).  Leave for 30 minutes and then clean with a sponge or cloth.
  3. Coat the tableware with a mixture of white vinegar and baking soda (one tablespoon of white vinegar to two tablespoons of baking soda). Leave it to sit overnight. Rinse with water to remove the mixture.
Some dishwashing detergents also cause tableware to hold on to certain smells. In order to prevent this, please allow enough space between the products to allow the detergent to rinse off properly and use the steam or dry setting.
My straw is mouldy - what can I do?

Mould that has formed on the inside of the straw can be removed by the following methods:-

  1. soaking it in hot soapy water and and then rubbing it between your fingers under a running tap.
  2. cleaning it with a small brush (we sell one as part of our replacement straws set)
  3. for very tough to remove mould/stains you can try dipping the brush in baking soda first, as this will act as a gentle abrasive.

Always wash as soon as possible after use, especially if used for anything other than water in order to prevent mould build up.
